This is my sketch for the band Swans. I tried to take Jesse's advice with regards to not being too literal. So the sketch doesn't depict actual swans or lyrics from the band. It is instead inspired by the general mood and feel of the music - dark and brooding, but not too self-indulgent. This quotation from frontman Michael Gira sums up the feeling I was going for with this sketch: 

"Swans are majestic, beautiful looking creatures. With really ugly temperaments."
