Illustration Friday – Focused (Moon Over Bourbon Street – #6)

I have stood many times outside her window at night
To struggle with my instinct in the pale moon light
How could I be this way when I pray to God above
I must love what I destroy and destroy the thing I love
Oh you’ll never see my shade or hear the sound of my feet
While there’s a moon over Bourbon Street

This week the Illustration Friday topic is Focused. This is my take on it. I’ve been wanting to do this piece for a long time (one based on the Sting song Moon Over Bourbon Street). In case if you are unfamiliar with the song, Sting wrote it based on Anne Rice’s book Interview With A Vampire.
He also said this:
“Anne Rice’s ‘Interview with the Vampire’ was the direct inspiration for this song, but there was a moonlit night in the French Quarter of New Orleans where I had the distinct impression that I was being followed.”


I really like how this one came out. It’s all digital, about 7″x9″. I’ve had so many images from this song that I wanted to do, but always came back to the part where he’s outside the window.
