L'enfant Assassin Des Mouches.

I went to the Barbican Hall last Saturday to see Jean Claude Vannier play "L'Enfant Assassin Des Mouches" and "L'Histoire De Melody Nelson" live, a great experience. "Melody Nelson" is one of my favorite Serge Gainsbourg album.
Michel Mousseau who was doing the sound effects was very funny to watch, playing sewing machine, anvil, washing dishes, slamming doors...



Oh, and I met Jarvis Cocker before the concert at the bar.

Fascinating blog and great art! I'm jealous of you getting a BMW to draw, SO cool! What medium did you use to draw with here? Interesting effect.

- Thanks Alexiev.

- Thanks Felicity, I sketched with my pen, then did all the colour on photoshop, scratched and get the worn out effect. Mix of different brushes and erasers.
