SONG ILLUSTRATION: “Tender Is The Ghost”
A sketch I did while in love in my second year at Kent. I then went over it digitally. This, too, was inspired by a song lyric (as are too many of my pieces): from Blur’s “Tender”, which features the reassuring verse:
Tender is the ghost
The ghost I love the most
Hiding from the sun
Waiting for the night to come
Possibly Damon Albarn was referring to some sort of metaphorical ghost, representing his innate desire, or the act of forbidden love, or something. I like my version better, because it has an actual ghost. “The Unquiet Dead”
, I’m looking at you.
