Wolf and I by JenniferWeiler Wolf and I by JenniferWeiler
EDIT ~ I won first place, guys!!!:fav.me/d4sq0ev AHHH That's a first! Thanks so much to everyone that voted for me!! <3 <3 <3
____________________________________________________________
Made this piece for :iconartnouveau:'s contest. Had to take a song and illustrate it in the art nouveau style. Originally, I wanted to do the entire Skyrim soundtrack.... LOL. But, I was thinking to myself one night and it dawned on me... Oh Land's "Wolf and I" ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=V4wHMO… ). I love the song and the lyrics are beautifully haunting. After I had decided on it, well there was no letting it go haha.

The song is about two lovers that cannot be together because of who they are (the wolf and the moon). I wanted to draw both their "human" and "actual" forms, the distance between them, the eternal night that surrounds them, and the longing to be with one another even though they know they cannot. Even though they share the night together, they can't ever physically be together, bound by the earth and the sky. Both of them join with the landscape to show their place and binding to where they belong, but there's a stream and two waterfalls that still connect them together. No matter the distance, they'll always have that love for one another.

I also wanted to dedicate this piece to a good friend of mine, EpicJuice. He's been a constant source of inspiration for me and although he lives no where near me, his presence in my life is something I will always cherish. You can be a world apart from someone and still consider them a best friend. So while I know I can't be there in person to let you know all of this, I hope that at least this shows you a little bit. Thank you. <3

Lyrics: "Wolf and I" by Oh Land
"Before the world you know was like it is
I held a lover once and I was his
And we walked along the river in the sun
But he's a lonely man, so this was done

The only place we had to meet was night
While the sun he sleeps in shadows we can hide
On the mountainside we spent our time together but it is gone when morning comes

And you are the wolf
And I am the moon
And in the endless sky we are but one
We are alive.
In my dreams wolf and I

How many days and nights will come and go
While the only light you'll see is from my glow
There will never be a dawn that breaks the spell surrounding us
Til the earth dies with the sun

And you are the wolf
And I am the moon
And in the endless sky we are but one
We are alive
In my dreams wolf and I"
