Especially if you love the song

It’s a really Great song

And I made this for my Drawing Class

What a great idea for a school project.  If only we had the chance to do such fun things when I was at school.  I hope you enjoy both the song (which happens to be one of my favourites from Arcade Fire, an indie Canadian band) and the illustration.   I thought it was so good I’m prepared to forgive it’s blurriness and I love the flashback scenes at the end.

El Ultimo Grito

EUG at the Valencia Fair is responsible for these wonderful pieces meticulously wrapped in colourful tape titled the ‘Tape Chair” of course. These pieces started their less animate lives as foam mattresses, folded and then distorted and shaped to an inch of their lives until they found this new life and purpose.
