Ideas and Planning
I’ve always loved Burial’s minimal, dark aesthetic. I think it matches his music beautifully and challenged myself to recreate visually the way Burial’s music makes me feel.
Listening to Burial instantly transports me to a pensive, melancholic, nostalgic place. For some reason I tie this mood with bus rides/road trips when it’s raining, leaning my head on the window.
I leaned into the themes of loneliness and solitude in Burials work by swapping the bus for a space ship and using my home cities of Houston and Austin in the Window.

- Taking progress shots along the way resulted in me being able to create some really nice artifacts, like this one!
