BRIEF: Create an illustrated interpretation of a musical track that is experienced by the viewer in an unconventional and pioneering way.
The brief tells us to choose a band or artist and create an illustrated response inspired by two of their tracks. The band I have chosen are Animal Collective, a particularly underrated band who are so different to the mainstream music that is out there at the moment. Animal collective describe themselves as neo-psychedelic band.
Below are a few of Animal Collective's album covers which I think are their best covers. I don't want to focus on doing just an album cover, I want to be able to express their music in my work and communicate with the viewer.
I've been doodling whilst listening to 'Graze' which is on their new EP Fall Be Kind. I've gone for the doodling approach as all my ideas seem to be stuck in my head. I will scan in some pages from my sketchbook to show how the development of my work is going.
- Graze - Animal Collective.
- Leaf House - Animal Collective.
- What Would I Want? Sky! - Animal Collective.
These are the three tracks i'm focusing on now but will probably narrow it down to Graze and Leaf House.... let's see shall we!
