art beats lyrics

Grand Hotel - Death Note 

I’m not putting this under a cut because it’s not complete and also… I’m really proud of it. If it comes up multiple times on your dash, pressing “j” should skip to the next post. I’ll also tag it “grand hotel” so people can block if they like. 

This is based in Em and Rene’s verse (as always! What can I say, I love their work) and while it doesn’t fit as well as some lyric art I make, I kept seeing it whenever I listened to the song. 

I made this when I was so tired of winter I felt like I needed to fill it with spring. 

I’m a princess cut from marble, smoother than a storm
And the scars that mark my body, they’re silver and gold
My blood is a flood of rubies, precious stones
It keeps my veins hot, the fire’s found a home in me
—  Lorde, “Yellow Flicker Beat”

I love art so much?? art is basically anything and everything. it’s taking a bucket full of paint and splashing the paint on a plain wall. it’s an image of mountains painted on a canvas. it’s a brightly colored pattern you see on a fire hydrant, that someone painted on. it’s shapes you see on the pavement when a few kids were playing with chalk outside. it’s doodles you do on your notebook. it’s a random sculpture you see in downtown; you don’t know what it is or what is means, but you give it a second glance because something about it is so beautiful. 

but art isn’t always something you see. it’s also music. a few instruments being played at the same time creating a beat is art. the lyrics are art. the way the words flow with the tune of the music is art. 

everything is art and I love it sm

Drew angsty Karamatsu as a way to get back into digital art? Lyrics from JubyPhonic’s English translation of Lost One’s Weeping, I had the piano version in mind as I drew this. I hope you like it? <3 (Just realized this could be seen as Ichi, too??)

She called me blue flower, more like morning-glory
My port is storming every time she tries to ford it for me
They’re always warring on the inside
There’s morning-glory on the inside

Loose up we break the scene
One step deep as you fall to me
Heart clap, we skip a beat
Count one two three…

Wide eyed, you look at me
Set on fire in a silver dream
Spin round you can feel the breeze
Count one, two, three…  

Listened to this song on repeat while drawing this and I consider it their song now. Whoops.
