UPDATED: LCD Soundsystem

....................................................................................................................................................................................

UPDATE:

I explored DKNG's suggestions with concept #3, working in landscape and keeping the image simple:

 

I had also had already started fleshing out concept #1 and challenged myself to keep it one color to see where it would go. I may add more colors but am kinda happy with where it's at:

Thoughts and comments much appreciated...THANKS!

I decided to go with LCD Soundsystem for 2 reasons: After doing some research I couldn't find a gig poster of theirs that matched the pictures that pop in my head while listening to their music...and they broke up before I could see them live so I guess it's a bit of a memorial to the band and an excuse to listen to their CDs a lot this month:) 

If you're unfamiliar, they were a dance rock band from NYC through the 00's. I think their best album is their last one, This is Happening, but all of them are insanely great. Here's some of their music:

Concept #1

A lot of their songs feel like ideas and sounds tossed on top of each other building up and ready to burst out. I thought to illustrate that feeling with the character bundled up in the Chicago skyline. The type would be scattered around as if they are objects in the scene with records and gear piled up at the bottom. 

Concept #2

It's like a modern punk trashy Americana feel playing off the Bruce Springsteen cover. The band name would be a lower back tattoo for "LCD" and belt for "Soundsystem". 

Concept #3

Inspired by the 'Drunk Girls' video, some broken records and headphones forming the band name. I thought either keep it simple like below or really overly complicate it with debris everywhere: spills, dirt, cups, cigarette butts, etc. where you almost really have to look to see the type. 

Concept #4ish

This one was pretty directly inspired by DKNG's excellent work, the image below of the trucks stacked, and my commute home tonight. It's a little underdrawn, but it's suppose to be three stacked commuter cars with every silohuetted person looking down to a phone. Then have one person in motion, or on top the train car or hanging out a window or something.

I was doodling on the train home tonight and took note of how many people were sitting motionless playing with their phones obivious to their surrounding. I liked the contrast between one device stucking people into a trance while another could make electronica music that makes me want to jump up and run around. 

Any thoughts, opinions, comments or howzaboutthis would be much appreciated!! THANKS!!!
