Illustration Friday: Routine [Drawing and Video]

August 28, 2008 at 2:23 AM (Art, Movies) (, , , , , , )

This week’s Illustration Friday topic is "Routine".  And when I saw that, there was only one thing I could think of — the song "Every Day is Exactly the Same" by Nine Inch Nails.  This is an amazing song, I can relate to it quite well (heh)!  Anyway, here is a page with more details on the song and the lyrics.  Without further ado, here is the drawing I did —

That’s Trent Reznor, the man behind Nine Inch Nails.  The picture was done with ballpoint pen on a small notepad actually!  You can click on the image above to see a larger version.

But wait!  That’s not all!  In addition to the above drawing, I did a bunch more inspired by the song and by movies that kind of follow a similar theme.  And what’s more, I filmed myself drawing them and put the footage together into a video.  So here’s a fan-made music video for Nine Inch Nails’ "Every Day is Exactly the Same", directed by yours truly, Karthik Abhiram —

You can go to the YouTube page here.  Feel free to comment either here or on the video page!

By the way, I’ve scanned the five other drawings that are visible in the video (one is visible VERY briefly, the others have considerably more screen time).  I will put them up later.  I actually did all this over the weekend but didn’t have the time to make this post.  Thought I’d go ahead with the Reznor drawing alone because I didn’t want to go too far away from Illustration "Friday"!
