Ne me quitte pas

Summer of 2014 offered me a lot of time to work in a new direction. Playing with my quills and elaborate splattering, freehand typography, and basically just going a bit weird with the art. Most of my inspiration comes from music. A lyric. A song title. A musician. Jacques Brel knew how to write about love. And the song Ne me quitte pas (Don't leave me) is probably the epitome of love and the pain you feel when someone you love leaves you. And this little devil is straight out daring you not to leave her. Tell me you can't listen to that song and not cry.
