I've been listening to Regina Spektor lately, and some of her songs are truly amazing !
One of her songs is called "Après moi" (which means "after me" in English
) and the lyrics contain the following sentence :
"After me comes the flood, après moi le déluge"
These words inspired me to create this (very) literal visual representation.
As always, I have a bunch of people to thank :
1. First and foremost, ~WolfcatStock
for her great stock photo of herself just walking (a rare find on dA
for the amazing empty SF street pic
for some neat water images
for his sweet cloud brushes
5. sxc.hu for various images of waves, waterfalls and other splashes
It's probably worth downloading the full size version to really appreciate the details (and the imperfections) !
I really enjoyed working on this, hope you like it too.
