Moonskin

Drawing passionates me as much as listening to music, it is one of the main influences on my work, music is the most abstract of  arts, it takes me to different landscapes, real and surreal, future and past, takes me to the deepest of my mind were i can explore ideas, feelings, memories and forms and i try to translate that, as lines on a white paper were i have absolute freedom.

for some time i´ve been thinking in making a series of illustrations based or inspired by songs, i´ve choosen the album “Passage” by swiss band Samael, this is one of my favorite albums, it has a unique and great sound it´s an amalgamation of symphonic black metal and industrial music and beautiful lyrics that explores spiritual growth and knowledge, love, our link with the universe and all living beings, among other themes.

moonskin s5Passage is a very interesting metal album, heavy, rhythmic and beautiful, there is also a piano version of the album were you can listen  clearly to the complex melodies. Hope you like this drawing and also try to listen to the album probably you´ll find it interesting too, anyway life is about experimenting and try new things, share and enjoy.

  1. Me encantó el dibujo y después de leer lo que escribiste, tenía que escuchar la canción. Eso es lo que estoy haciendo ahora. 🙂
