Felt Mountain 1: Lovely Head by nyctopterus Felt Mountain 1: Lovely Head by nyctopterus
This is the first in a series of drawings inspired by Goldfrapp's Felt Mountain (which you can listen to here). Track No. 1, Lovely Head.

Now, normally I find quoting song lyrics in descriptions rather naff, but since it is rather the point:

It starts in my belly
Then up to my heart
Into my mouth I can't keep it shut
Do you recognize the smell
Is that how you tell
Us apart
I fool myself
To sleep and dream
Nobody's there
No-one but me
So cool
You're hardly there
Why cant this be killing you
Frankenstein would want your mind
Your lovely head
Your lovely head

If you haven't heard Felt Mountain, but like my art, you're really missing out. Although I made my first "crystaline" retro-futuristic drawings before I discovered Goldfrapp, it's an almost perfect stylistic counterpart to my work.

I once considered animating the entire album, but then I calculated that would take me more than a year full-time, and would also be forever in the copyright mire. So I procrastinated for a while (okay, nearly two years) -- and finally decided to do drawings instead.

This one's great. I adore Goldfrapp's music, especially Felt Mountain and Seventh Tree.

Man, what a fascinating gallery you've got! This reminds me a little of Remedios Varo.

i don't think there ar actually copyright issues if you are simply "inspired by" something. even titles can't really be copyrighted, that's why dozens of songs and books can have the same title by different authors, etc. besides, i bet that Goldfrapp would like your art too. this one kind of reminds me of a Remedios Varo painting.
