I love Michael Jackson

Michael’s Talent Beyond His Music

MJ drawingsMJ drawings 2

Without a doubt, Michael Jackson was definitely an artistic genius.  But did you know,  he also had a talent for drawing – himself?

Michael’s longtime friend, Steven Hoefflin, has revealed drawings Jackson gave him. “One of the things people don’t know about Michael was that he loved to draw.”

“He drew countless pictures of himself as a young boy, and of the man he hoped he would grow up to be.”


Three of the pencil sketches are signed by Michael Jackson and dated 1985.

I also added one Michael Jackson drew in 1971 when he was thirteen, displaying his feelings about the Vietnam War. The outstretched arms would later become one of his trademark performance poses we love so much.


“I know the creator will go, but his work survives, that is why, to escape death, I attempt to bind my soul to my work.  Dedication, Will, Belief creates all things, Believe. Michael Jackson.”

    Michael Jackson was not only a talented in music and dance. His gift from God enabled him to express himself through words and through drawings. This genius that we had for a short time was able to do everything! Maybe that is why he was misunderstood by others. People do not understand how to treat someone who is different and gifted so they try to tear them down and bring them down to size. No one could tear MJ down no matter how hard they tried. he was and will always be a unique artist and his legacy will live forever!
