Before Midnight
The self-initiated illustration is inspired the short story The Masque of the Red Death by Edgar Allan Poe. The idea is to depict the absurdity of the party with the bright color in contrast to the Red Death.

The title of this work came from the the paragraph, “But these other apartments were densely crowded, and in them beat feverishly the heart of life. And the revel went whirlingly on, until at length there commenced the sounding of midnight upon the clock.”
