This series of illustrations takes an in depth look at the influence of music on illustration. each artwork, though inspired by music, has an emotional theme: love, loneliness, anxiety, despair, hope and guilt. Each illustration is a visual representation of my interpretation of the song.
An aim of this study is to recognise the way music can be used as a means of inspiration or idea generation when it comes to illustration. the core focus is to "feel". Each piece has a strong emotional content which is conveyed through facial expression, mood and atmosphere.
Though incorporated quite subtly, the lyrical content is meant to at first quietly connect with the viewer and then once the overall message has been conveyed, connect on a much stronger emotional level.
My objective with these illustrations is to communicate the essence of the song, or my interpretation of it, by creating pieces that evoke felling and that are relatable.
