There’s this band I like called Lordi – you might have heard of them, they won Eurovision several years ago and they’re all dressed as monsters. I love them a lot, and have wanted to make some work inspired by them for a long time. So, I’ve started a series called ‘Lordi Girls’, and so far I’ve made two images, each one inspired by the descriptions of various women and girls in different Lordi songs.
The first image is called ‘Girl Next Door’ and is based off of various lines from the song ‘Deadite Girls Gone Wild’, specifically:
“She lures you in with intention
Looks like the girl next door
But it’s blood and sticky floors
That really turn her on”
The second image is titled after the song that it takes inspiration from, ‘Girls Go Chopping’. This one was a more literal interpretation of the concept of the song than Girl Next Door, but I still like it. I’ve got plans to make more of these, as there are plenty of ‘Lordi Girls’ to choose from to make into illustrations. I also made a process gif of how I created ‘Girls Go Chopping’, which you can see at the bottom of the post if you’re interested.
