Everybody hurts, sometimes

Everybody hurts, sometimes....
Remember that song? Or..... have you ever heard it? I will post a video at the end just in case, and because I love it.
So my June guy today is the singer of REM, from that video.

Here is the final product: (4x6 index card)

This is the drawing as scanned, no changes:

And this is the original image from the video:

Now you can enjoy the music:
