Do You Realize

Do You Realize

Illustration for the songĀ “Do You Realize” by The Flaming Lips

Tasked with illustrating a song the choice was easy, at the time of studying I had recently discovered the fantastic psychedelic band “The Flaming Lips” and had fallen in love with their “Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots” album.

“Do You Realize” is a song dealing with our limited lifespan on earth which made it particularly interesting to take my hand on.

 

 

Trying to stay true to The Flaming Lips I tried to make sure the colour scheme was similar to festival posters and album covers they appeared on, that is to say psychedelic and vibrant with a strong focus on orange and purple. I wanted it to be surreal and be made out entirely of symbolism.
