Inktober Day 8: Star

So, here we are a week in to the Inktober challenge. So far so good. Today's prompt word is 'Star.' I was going to do a cheesy cartoon star, a literal cartoon star as a celebrity type star, but thought it would be more appropriate to do something with Lou Reed, since I am currently reading his bio. So, I tried to portray this star as an aging star/person, but with the Velvet Underground glasses. I'm not sure just what Reed thought of stardom, it seems like it was a difficult balance even if he desired it. I don't think that Lou Reed ever pretended to be hopeful or optimistic, but I do believe he was striving for it.

Stars in the eyes of a rock n roll animal.
