Rock and Roll Tribute Storage Box
I wanted to do a little tribute to my musical hero.
So, I had this boring wooden box laying around. The NY winter was getting to me so I needed a small project to lift my spirits. Painting and listening to Queen gave me the boost I needed. A well made wooden box, but (yawn) it needed life.
This is Freddie- in that fabulous Harlequin print. This inspired me.. here's another..
I knew what size I wanted my inspiration Harlequin print to be. So I sketched it out on cardboard and kept a triangle. I used a Sharpie to trace the cardboard around the box and form my print. Tedious, but worth it.
I'm not a huge fan of stenciled perfect lettering- at least not for a tribute to my funky, imperfect icon. I sketched the letters over the top of the box and hand painted them. My inspiration song is one of his best- 'The Show Must Go On'. If you haven't heard it, you must!
So after I finished the letters, I worked on the harlequin.
There are so many great photos of this man rocking out his harlequin print! I printed a bunch of them and worked them into the print.
I wanted the inside to pop. Aside from the harlequin print, some of my favorite pictures of him are red. He wore lots of red! I took some lyrics from the song, some bold red paint, some pics of him in red, and boom! My Rock Box.
For those of you that are fans, here's a bit of history behind the song.
This was just a little way to combine my love of music with my love of art. Sweet and simple. Thanks for following and sticking to the end.
