This piece features Michael performing Billie Jean during the Thriller era, with his trademark fedora, sequin jacket, and white glove. I still remember seeing him perform this on the Motown special so many years ago…when he moonwalked on TV for the very first time. It really was magic. And I remember the first time I saw his Billie Jean short film too. Always the showman. Always the music legend.

Time for some more Michael Jackson Art to satisfy my MJ art cravings for awhile. My inspiration for this piece is one of Michael’s legendary performances…Billie Jean.
Michael was pure magic (to me anyway) so I always like to add a little touch of magic to my MJ digital art. And I’m always mesmerized by any of his legendary Billie Jean performances. The fedora. The sparkle jacket. The white glove. He defined the word MAGIC, and gave new meaning to the word EPIC. My digital art can’t even do justice to how much he inspires me.
But I try.
I wasn’t able to get into my studio this past weekend, so I spent some time doing some more Michael Jackson Art to add to My Digital Sketchbook. These pieces all feature close-ups of MJ’s face. And once again, all of these were created digitally with PhotoScape.
These are definitely some classic images of Michael from his life and career. And I love how these turned out.
I love it when I get a chance to bring my art and my favorite musical artist together in an art project. In this case I’m bringing Michael Jackson to an altered art style canvas, inspired by the Gingersnap Creations Kings & Queens Challenge. I’ve called it simply, King of Pop.
I started with a blank white canvas that is 5×7″ in size and created the background by first painting it with black acrylic. Then I took some metallic white fluid acrylic and dry-brushed that over the black to give it some texture.
Next I created the torn paper pieces that I would add to the background. They are made from watercolor paper, which I’ve stamped with a sheet music design in black ink, and then I distressed the edges with black Distress Ink too. I glued those in place on the canvas.
Then I added the Michael Jackson photo sticker, which shows the King of Pop in one of his classic concert outfits, which he wore while performing Billie Jean. I also created the glitter glove from cardstock and glitter and added that. And I created Michael’s classic black fedora out of black scrapbook paper too, and added that over the stamped paper.
The final embellishments were glittery crown stickers, which I already had on hand, along with rhinestone gems, and sparkly white letters, which spell out King of Pop.
I have a wall dedicated to Michael in my home office (the other wall is dedicated to posters from my favorite movies and TV shows…and I have a little area dedicated to Elvis too). So I will add this piece there. I love how it turned out.
