Hurt

Song lyrics are one of the greatest inspirations for my collages. Sometimes I just can´t get some verses out of my head until I´ve "illustrated" them - which can be very loosely and intuitive like I did here. This skinny quotes the song "Hurt" by Nine Inch Nails, wonderfully covered by Johnny Cash.
"I hurt myself today / to see if I still feel. / I focus on the pain, / the only thing that´s real."
If you want to see more songs used in art pieces have a look at this week´s Three Muses challenge.

Marion, your "skinny" is exquisite. I love the lyrics you have chosen and I love the beautiful design and colouring in your collage.
Stunning artwork!! (And I am so pleased to know that someone else uses song lyrics for inspiration!)

Marion, your skinny is awesome and illustrates the lyrics so beautifully. You are so right, if you need inspiration to create, then just think of a song. This deserves some very loud applause.

Song lyrics sure are a wonderful source of inspiration. I feel the pain of these ones... This is a wonderful illustration.
