Inside a figment of my imagination

Man Is  A Virus album art

Final update- I decided to scrap the idea of putting a label on what segment of the population is making “man a virus” and go with something a little broader but fits the song nicely. I’m going to get a little deeper here so if you are not really feeling that, enjoy the artwork above-n- below and stop reading here. Well working on this songs artwork I was forced to learn an inevitable but valuable lesson. What a song means to me could be very different than what it means to you. An innate part of being a creator is acknowledging or learning that what is created may be interpreted in multiple ways.  I have caught myself slapping a visual label (album artwork) on music that may not convey what was originally intended by the music. The whole process of making a song can take several weeks months and sometimes years to complete. The artwork on the other hand can be completed in a few hours or days at a maximum. So I run the risk of tarnishing a songs potential with the artwork which is completed far quicker and sometimes with different ideas bouncing around my think box. For example at the begging of making “Man is a Virus” I was thinking how destructive we have become to ourselves and also the detrimental impact we are having on our planet along with all the other species we share our home with. This encompasses a far greater deal then I wish to discuss here but given the situation we all find ourselves in today I’m sure many can relate. As for the artwork it was far more localized to the time it was created so first it was the bieber fans filling up my twitter feed and months later the GOP started or should I say maintained their disgraceful antics and became way more fitting a match for the virus that I speak of. Honestly I was going to take it further and include the koch brothers and a few talking heads but my better judgment made me realize that was putting a very narrow range on the meaning the song could have for some people and despite my anger at the greed corruption in and the senseless mockery being made of our government. I made a creative choice to exclude them for the greater good of my music hope you enjoy the artwork and music for “Man Is a Virus”

till next time - KkD

Update- given the GOP's recent actions I think some of their ugly mugs are far more deserving of the title of “Man Is a Virus” than Justin so i'm glad i delayed the release now 

This is the idea for the album art for my song "Man Is A Virus" its not finished yet and I would like your suggestions. so for starters yes that's slime giving Justin Bieber the finger while a two headed E.T. eagerly awaits to eat him and a white Mogwai "Gizmo" ,a red/black Alf, an octopus, M.I.B. baby aliens and a few others look at him with disapproval. this is all as the buff judge renders his verdict. I'm running out of space but if you would like me to add some one its still a work in progress. i'm thinking of adding money to his backpack and still have to enlarge/center man is a virus on his tee shirt. the song has nothing to do with justin but is more about what he represents (in the music industry at least) and considering his beliebers are constantly in my twitter feed i though it only right a depiction of him representing the visual idea for the song

i will post a demo of song "Man Is A Virus" here soon
