Blue – Pat Grant



Blue is a comic by Pat Grant which focuses on a young australian revisiting a town he grew up in to find that much of it has changed. Rather than focus on story I want to shift focus to the colors. The artist capitalizes on setting a tone using almost primarily shades of blue. This is done to reflect on the calmness of the setting the characters are participating in. It reflects a coastal town, breezing with cool air and scents of salt from the ocean, the theme is consistent throughout

Boards of Canada is one of those groups who in terms of tone and feeling remain consistent not only throughout their album Music Has The Right To Children but throughout their career. They pioneered IDM (intelligent dance music) and Triphop as we now it today. The feelings expressed in this release are that of the calm and free. The tracks were meant to give the feeling of love, life and the happiness of youth. The music through its textures and swirling synths reflects the albums art and color
