What really drew me to work on this piece was the idea.  The concept to create a design which can be interpreted by each individuals personal taste in music.  It’s neither genre confined or a declarative fatuous verse.

For me, I look at this and feel the blues.  I don’t just see it or read it, but feel those dampening tones weighing heavier and the dizzying effect of sorrow.  Hot-sticky summer bars, almost absent of oxygen, and filled with loneliness.  It’s quite fascinating how folks can turn their suffering into such a gratifying melody.  It seems like both mediums share some similar qualities.

This design was completed over the course of 2 sessions totaling about 7 1/2 hours.
