Illustrating Lyrics

An Idiot's End by Lucas T. AntoniakOccasionally, if I have the time, I’ll translate a particular song lyric that sticks with me into a painting for my own amusement.┬áThis one from a few years back is based on a line from the song “An Idiot’s End” by Daniel Johnston: “…a court jester holds up a lightbulb and says “All that is made is made to decay.”” (Johnston himself is also an artist and has done a lot of Beatles-inspired paintings and drawings.)

I’ll post more of these illustrated lyrics (some are pretty old!) as I run across them and create new ones.
