|Bang Bang he shot me down | Acrylic on watercolor paper|
I think as artists we all have our different sources for inspiration. One of the few I indulge in very often would be music. 'Bang Bang he shot me down' is one of the many illustrations from the 'Doll' series I created some years back.
It started with Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill which featured the song. Then the radio began blasting it non stop. I was listening to Bang Bang when I had been feeling most jaded, hence leading to majority of the 'Doll' series leaning towards the darker side. I can only say that life brings new experiences that allows different levels of emotions, which in turn purges interesting series of works.
Here's the song. A remix actually, which I much prefer. Spunkier. Enjoy!
