This weekend I started to wrap up projects I’ve been working on for months now. Next week begins the countdown for our community’s favorite event, #31Nightmares. While I placed the end drafts into my folders I worked on this multi-purpose template for future prints. It was fully inspired by the recent autumnal equinox and some of our feathered friends in the skies migrating to warmer regions.
A few weeks back there was snow in my area upon awakening in the morning. It was so early I was surprised to see snow going on while the sun was blasting through and steadily rising. The moment triggered off an old memory of a blizzard we had around my former area when I was a kid. The whole thing made me remember a song I first heard in a mall parking lot on a day where someone related to me punched me in the face. I was still somewhat young, not yet even in middle school. That song also made me think of a friend that shares its name & a great conversation we once had.
I’m using the design for greeting cards.
Sometimes you have to make the best out of something bad.
This is the song:
What makes your blood run cold? Do songs sometimes remind you of a day?
This piece is a mixture of horror and surreal/fantasy art. It’s dreamy qualities are based off of a nightmare I had in childhood where the moon spoke. It was a fantastic visual and has shown up in my artwork more than once.
