Blue lips, blue veins

Blue, the color of our planet from far, far away…

[Blue Lips, Regina Spektor]

idk if I have the sTRENGTH or tIME to do a complete songcomic now but I’ve been experimenting with this style of inking in my midtone sketchbook. This song inspired a whole bunch of imagery with me and i’d love to explore it more definitely! I liked the thought of pre-revolutionary Alfred being a little farm country yeoman in the early 1700s, growing up, and then moving to the new towns springing up on the coast and being overwhelmed by all the people :0

Them as Song Lyrics

I’m actually really glad you asked for this.


Alex; Regina Spektor - Blue Lips

The pictures in his mind arose and began to breathe. And all the gods and all the worlds began colliding on a backdrop of blue. Blue lips. Blue veins.


Tyler; Awolnation - Sail

This is how I show my love. I made it in my mind because, I blame it on my A.D.D., baby. This is how an angel dies. I blame it on my own sick pride. I blame it on my A.D.D., baby.


Zach; Yael Naim - New Soul

I’m a new soul. I came to this strange world, hoping I could learn a bit about how to give and take. But since I came here, I felt the joy and the fear. Finding myself making every possible mistake.


Clay; The Fray - How to Save a Life

Some sort of window to your right. As he goes left, and you stay right. Between the lines of fear and blame. You begin to wonder why you came.


Jeff; 3 Doors Down - Kryptonite

You took for granted all the times I never let you down. You stumbled in and bumped your head. If not for me then you’d be dead.


Justin; Blackbear - IDFC

I act like I don’t fucking care. Like they ain’t even there. ‘Cause I have hella feelings for you. I act like I don’t fucking care. ‘Cause I’m so fucking scared.


Tony; Supergrass - Alright

Got some cash, bought some wheels. Took it out, through some fields. Lost control, hit a wall. But we’re alright.

on the lack of answers. a Soma mix for Simon, Catherine, and the losses they uncover along the way.

VOODOO CHILD - a fran fanmix


I’M BORED, iggy pop -  i’m sick/i’m sick of all my kicks/i’m sick of all the stiffs/i’m sick of all the dips/i’m bored

THIS SHIP WAS BUILT TO LAST, the duke spirit - i couldn’t care less if i live in my head/i’ve shed all my tears and i’m better than bored

HARD TO EXPLAIN, the strokes - well i am too young/and they are too old/the joke is on you/this place is a zoo/you’re right, it’s true

BLUE LIPS, regina spektor - he stumbled into faith and thought/god this is all there is/the pictures in his mind arose/and began to breathe/and all the gods in all the worlds/began colliding on a backdrop of blue

PECULIAR PEOPLE, mute math - there is more to who we are than meets the eye/we are peculiar people/we are peculiar people/and no one will convince me otherwise

VOODOO CHILD, jimi hendrix -  and if i don’t meet you no more in this world/then i’ll/i’ll meet you in the next one/and don’t be late/don’t be late/cause I’m a voodoo child

SHUT UP, kelly osbourne -  blah blah/blah blah/blah blah/blah blah/that’s what/it sounds like you said to me/you nag and you brag and i gag/there’s so much beauty in what we have

YOU’RE GONNA GO FAR KID, the offspring -  with a thousand lies/and a good disguise/hit ‘em right between the eyes
