Thank you Philippe Debongnie for asking me to participate in Jazz and Draw. This is a blog that showcases the artist and jazz music together. I decided to illustrate the gorgeous song "I'll be seeing you". Many musicians have covered this song but I have always loved the version from Francoise Hardy and Iggy Pop and the other version from Billie Holiday. Check out Jazz and Draw and the talented Philippe Debongnie's website.

  4. Yes, Miss Melisa your picture is perfect not only for IF, is perfect to see and admire.
    and very romantic too, I do not know why the romance gets a bad press (I mean that in these years is as outdated) because thanks to the love we see great work like this yours!
    Thanks for stopping by.

  14. I think the folks who called this timeless hit the nail on the head! I couldn't come up with a more appropriate adjective. Well, it's also quite lovely and so nicely done. I love the pose and the hairstyle and the ways you captured a classic style, but also put your own stamp on it. (I listened to the Billie Holliday version when I wrote this and it really is a great complement to it!) I will have to go check out that site. :)
