March challenge at work was about illustrating our favorite song. Now, I don’t have a favorite song, there are way too many songs I like. But I’ve been wanting to make a Vampire Club video for a long time.
Voltaire – Vampire Club
I didn’t have time to make a whole video but I did some concepts. And I’m going to try and finish it during down times to practice my After Effect skills.
Now, the funny thing is, some 5 years ago there was the first all girl art challenge on Conceptart.org and the theme was to illustrate a song. I had chosen Voltaire’s Graveyard Picnic. I had taken many many reference pics at Notre-Dame des Neiges cemetery for the occasion and I liked painting gravestones so much that I did whole series of paintings of graveyards and statues. Now I’m preparing for a show of my graveyard paintingsat Katacombes in June. And Voltaire is playing at Katacombes next weekend. A bit too early to see the paintings, damnit!
But all that to say that sometimes strange coincidences happen.
