Note from the artist:
When the song Fever by The Black Keys starts, it says Where'd you run to? It put an image of a horse running through a field for some reason in my head. Lately I have been combining animal images with human skeletons and skulls…I put one for each band member inside the horse. Then there is a new song on the Turn Blue album called, Bullet In The Brain, which made me think to have a burst of detailed confusion coming out of one of the skulls. Again it is a style of illustration I have been enjoying where I continually draw shapes and designs that organically interweave and get a bit hectic. In this big mess of doodles, I put images I think of from listening to The Black Keys, from a Broken Heart, Guitar, Rooster, Crashed Car, Beer Can, Dice, even the iconic drum of Patrick Carney…and last I wanted the colors to really pop and go with their latest color scheme. Overall, I think it came together great. Had a lot of fun with this one.
