Night 5. Eight more to go. Like every illustration I’ve done so far, there is always a song that gets stuck in my head and sort of sets the tone for what I’m looking for in a scene. Night 1 was Shake Your Coconuts, Night 2 was Strawberry Letter 23, Night 3 was Sunday Morning, Night 4 was Lawn Boy, and now Night 5 was Cars Trucks Buses. I envisioned a bustling street scene.
Like the other nights, representing each song was a bit of challenge when it came to thinking of each element and how I could make them work with each other. The biggest challenges were Mr. Completely and Character 0. Since the words of Mr. Completely are “Hearts will billow from the steam”, I had the steam from my “Steam girl” billow in the shape of hearts toward that sort of hippie -looking fellow on top on the truck. My person lighting the “Very Long Fuse” is sporting a sweater with a giant zero on it. I’m hoping everything else is easy to distinguish.
Here is the setlist. Thank you for checking it out. Double Chocolate is next.
