Basically, ESWM is Brendon writing to Ryan. There’s a LOT of this in other panic songs and looking at Panic! lyrics vs Young Veins lyrics, but this is most likely the first written instance of this. Nearly Witches was originally from the Cabin Album, therefore the first thing written off of VV. And the first instance of that “song letter” deal going on.
Before you read any of this, go read punkcircus’s and 2008ryan’s analysis on Operatic Skeleton alone. It’s not SUPER relevant to ESWM vs OS but it’s important on it’s own.
Some of the character designs I did for my adaptation of East of the Sun, West of the Moon.
I learned a lot with this project and am going to try and work on the things that were really hard for me. Maybe the people familiar with the fairy tale can recognise some of the characters! Since I adapted the fairy tale, I had to change quite a bit of the plot, but I tried to keep what makes the story unique.
Maybe some of you have been wondering why I posted more rarely these last couple months. This is part of the reason why.
I finished art school and this was my final project, a concept for an animated movie based on the fairy tale East of the Sun, West of the Moon. If you live close to Weisbaden, Germany, my full thesis is on display from today till Saturday, the 16th at Walhalla Theater. The show starts at 7pm each day and displays all the graduation projects from our school.
I recorded the process for this one and will post the video link later tonight!
