Illustrating the music of The Decemberists.
This coming Tuesday (22nd) I begin work on the Final Major Project of my 1 Year Foundation Art diploma; a six-week, self-initiated project of our own choosing based on our selected pathway (Illustration).
The project I have decided to undertake is to produce a series of artworks based on the lyrics and music of The Decemberists*.
To be honest this is a project that I’ve been playing around with in my head for the past couple of years, I’ve just never found the time to give it the attention it deserves. I’ve been going through dozens of lyric sheets and have been listening to The Decemberists solidly for the past fortnight but I have managed to start whittling down the song choices and sketching up rough ideas for the pieces so that I can throw myself straight into the production of polished pieces almost as soon as I’m back in the studio.
So hopefully before to long I’ll start sharing some of my work on here: sketches, works-in-progress, notes, etc.
Hope y’all don’t mind The Decemberists!!
I have a soft spot for skulls and deep, sunken eye sockets…
