Hi there all CA members or at least the ones who'll read this,
this is my first post on CA and I will greatly appreciate any critique.
These illustrations were made to be used in an interactive flash animation entitled "This is my city tumbling in on itself". I described my city as an organism which loves and hates. These illustrations serve as a setting for the narration that takes place.
So tell me what you think, Please.
Animation inspired by:
The Dead Flag Blues – Godspeed You! Black Emperor
The car's on fire and there's no driver at the wheel
and the sewers are all muddied with a thousand lonely suicides
and a dark wind blows
the government is corrupt
and we're on so many drugs
with the radio on and the curtains drawn
we're trapped in the belly of this horrible machine
and the machine is bleeding to death
the sun has fallen down
and the billboards are all leering
and the flags are all dead at the top of their poles
it went like this:
the buildings tumbled in on themselves
mothers clutching babies picked through the rubble
and pulled out their hair
the skyline was beautiful on fire
all twisted metal stretching upwards
everything washed in a thin orange haze
I said: "kiss me, you're beautiful -
these are truly the last days"
you grabbed my hand and we fell into it…
like a daydream or a fever
we woke up one morning and fell a little further down -
for sure it's the valley of death
i open up my wallet
and it's full of blood
