These pictures show off the two things about Joan that invite you in the most: her eyes and her smile. She exudes an incredible amount of class, confidence, and pure joy, and doesn’t need to be cheap or slutty to assert her worth. While undeniably sexy, Joan Jett is more than just a skin-tight leather jumpsuit and a pretty face.
Mikey always does a beautiful job with his enhancements, but personally, I prefer Joan untouched. Her flaws make her human, and I think her humanity is the sexiest thing about her. What do you think?
JJ, I agree that flaws make us human and all of that, but my style of “Digital Art” makes no room for flaws 🙂 I can’t describe it, the style is more pop-art, y’know? Sure, art takes many forms, but when I look at a photo, I want to feel something immediately, like “Wow! That’s AMAZING!” There is, however, something to be said about the reflection and being able to see avary glass of wine, every cigarette and every painful and happy moment (and surgery) written all over ones face, but I don’t prefer that style. I do however, respect it for what it is.. raw and full of emotion.. sometimes too much.
I love your art style, Mikey! Sorry, I should’ve worded that better. I was just being emo and girlie, as usual. 🙂
IMPORTANT! I have to give photo credit to Tiia Santavirta for these amazing shots she took when Joan was touring overseas. I’m so sorry I forgot to tag them. These are some of the best live shots of JOan I have ever seen. Nice work… and here’s another one I “had my way” with 🙂 http://lh5.ggpht.com/_2ieni1i7xs0/TMVtA0asskI/AAAAAAAATTg/ibghTXQbgBw/s800/DSC_0311.jpg
Thanks! I’ll add a tag later. Where were they taken?
i have to admit i like her with out retouching…but these are lovely pictures in their own right.
awsome photos<3 she looks so happy, it makes me smile 🙂
Joan is just a georgous woman period. I do like her pics better without so much retouching she doesn’t need it. They’re great pics she’s beautiful either way I do prefer a more real look.
Am a huge fan of Joan Jett’s, and I was wondering if it is Okay to use one of her pictures as a profile picture. I see other fans do this and just wanted to ask permission first Is it Okay?
Hi! I am not Joan Jett, and Joan doesn’t visit this site. So I can’t give official permission. But lots of fans use pics of various celebrities as their profile pics, so I think it’s ok as long as you are not impersonating the celebrity or trying to commit fraud.
Thank You for answering! What I will do is put kind of like a disclaimer under the picture so that people will Know that I am NOT claiming to be her, I have been a huge fan for a long time and I just wanted to honor her by using one of her pics as a profile pic.
I have the dvd, be jelous. Just kidding.
