Update on Narrative Image and Printmaking project

Hello again well this update is over due but better late than never, one of the hardest and most stressful projects I have ever had to do, but it was worth it in the end. As I said before these were 3 final pieces based around a piece of text or in my case three separate pieces of text but connected to the text, they are connected by the fact that they are song lyrics by the same band (SLIPKNOT) from the same album (IOWA).


 The Heretic Anthem :D, I tried to capture the idea/meaning behind the song of individualism and standing out of the crowd. So I looked at the concept of a goat among sheep and how you should not follow the crowd like a sheep. 


 People=Shit :D, I again tried to capture the idea/meaning behind the song of the people who were against Slipknot and their music. The image also shows what they went through for there music and the abuse they got from the people who equal shit.

Left Behind :D, with this piece I tried to capture the concept of being left behind, what is left behind after death and what is washed away.

Each piece is connected to each other by an aspect of the Goat which represents the Band and the audience (those that listen to and are fans of the music). The goat is stands alone rather than following the crowd like a sheep which is a key symbol of the band which they have used in there album for Iowa and on there coveralls which they have worn on stage.
