Ray Davies by Shivluvzmusic Ray Davies by Shivluvzmusic
Ray Davies of The Kinks :worship: :worship:

"Almost indisputably rock's most literate, witty and insightful songwriter!!"

A4 Paper, 2B and 4B pencils,charcoal pencil, eraser, fingers for blending and LOTS OF ICE CREAM :hungry:
6 plus hrs on and off. Messed up at so many features :shakefist: Does it look like him? :confused:


Right now fav one of The Kinks - Ape Man :sing:

I donít feel safe in this world no more
I donít want to die in a nuclear war
I want to sail away to a distant shore
And make like an ape man

This is awesome. I've seen Ray play up close and personal a couple of times and your are right, he is very witty and entertaining much less talented. Great work.
