  • La Dispute is a band that I find really inspirational and particularly moving. Their lyrics are beautifuly written and were perfect to illustrate creatively. I did this for someone I love, and framed it to give to them. The lyrics:
     
    "And if I do not miss a part of you, a part of me is dead. 
    If I can't love you as a lover, I will love you as a friend. 
    And I will lay a bed before you, keep you safe until the end."
     
    It is the ending verse to a song called 'Andria', probably my favourite of theirs. Enjoy :)
     
  • Initial pencil sketching
  • After multiple attempts to perfect the composition, I traced it onto textured card. 
  • The Final Composition
  • Scanned image
  • Photoshop Manipulation - colour overlay. I took this photo myself (now heavily edited) in Canada. 
  • Photoshop manipulation #2 - A photo I took looking over Paris which I've again edited to be the backdrop for my artwork.
