2015 submission to the AIGA Always Summer Poster Show. I chose the song Take the Night Off by Laura Marling. It is an enchanting, whimsical song about a past relationship that she can't seem to shake from her mind. The man lurking on her shoulder represents the "beast" in the song who she is telling to Take the Night Off. He continues to creep up the stairs to the open door with the wind chime (incorporated in the song) every night.
The second poster was revisited a year after the original was made. I took away the white space, birds and stairs and simplified it to just the two of them in the stars. To me, the fading of her image represents her loosing herself.
"You should be gone beast, be gone from me. Be gone from my mind at least ... let a little lady be."
