Madonna diventa un fumetto

Gli album di Madonna non sono mai stati così iconici

Restyling per gli album di Madonna: Liam Alexander si è dedicato nel suo ultimo lavoro alla regina del pop, disegnando in chiave fumettistica i suoi 14 album in studio.

Finora l’artista ha pubblicato illustrazioni per Madonna, Like A Virgin, True Blue, Like A Prayer, Erotica, Bedtime Stories, Ray Of Light e, proprio questa settimana, Music. Manca ancora all’appello Confessions on a Dance Floor, che l’artista ha promesso di pubblicare presto.

Ogni copertina ha dei riferimenti molto chiari e lampanti ai video o simboli iconici della tracklist del rispettivo album. «Attualmente sto lavorando a un elenco dei miei artisti preferiti, reinventando il loro lavoro in questo stile fumettistico – ha detto Liam a Gay Times – È il mio modo di rendere omaggio a ogni epoca e riesco a combinare il mio amore per la musica e i fumetti. Madonna era in cima alla mia lista perché è sempre stata una grande fonte di ispirazione per me».

Non bisogna essere per forza fan di Madonna per non rimanere affascinati da questi lavori che, se non altro valgono una visita sul profilo Instagram di Liam.

Madonna – Music Comic Cover Project • • By the time this album was released I’d become a big Madonna fan. I had it on a loop for months and it still feels fresh after almost 20 years. It has some of my favourite Madonna songs (Impressive Instant, Paradise, Gone, Don’t Tell Me) and one of my least favourites (NP). I think this one would round out my Top 5 Madonna albums. Sometimes it seems to get overlooked in her discography but I love it. • • Again, there’s a reference for every song and prints are available (link is in the bio). • • #madonna #music #donttellme #americanpie #madamex #queenofpop #comic #comics #comicart #fanart #art #illustration #illustrator #digitalart #photoshop #instagay #artistsoninstagram #artist #gayboy #artwork #gayartist #instaart #comicbookart #artofinstagram #artistic #artoftheday #madonnaart #queen

Madonna – Ray of Light Comic Cover Project • • ‘Ray of Light’ is my favourite Madonna album as well as being one of my favourites from any artist. It was the first Madonna album I bought and inspired me to delve in to her back catalogue and be invested in everything she has done since. In fact, a lot of my favourites were released between 96 – 98 (Pele, Homogenic, Velvet Rope, Choirgirl, OK Computer, Man, One in a Million etc.) • • The video for Frozen has always stood out to me as being one of her most striking images so I wanted to base it around this. A similar colour palette was used for Power of Goodbye so it seemed to fit thematically. She sings a lot about water and fire throughout the album so I wanted to make this a main theme of the piece. I didn’t want to overcrowd the cover with references – there is one for every song but some are small, some are almost hidden. • • As usual, prints are available through the link in my bio. • • #madonna #rayoflight #frozen #nothingreallymatters #madamex #queenofpop #comic #comics #comicart #fanart #art #illustration #illustrator #digitalart #photoshop #instagay #artistsoninstagram #artist #gayboy #artwork #gayartist #instaart #comicbookart #artofinstagram #artistic #artoftheday #madonnaart #queen

Madonna – Bedtime Stories Comic Cover Project • • It’s been a while… I took a break and then I went on holiday so this has taken a little longer than planned. I’m back on it now though so I’m going to try and get a few more out before the end of the year. • • This one is also in my top 5 Madonna albums. I think it’s a perfect record from beginning to end. I love how soft and understated the songs are and I’m a whore for Nellee Hooper and Dallas Austin. The closing trio of Sanctuary, Bedtime Story and Take a Bow has to be the best closing run of a Madonna album (or at least my personal favourite). • • For this one, I only had a vague idea of what I wanted to do so I more or less just made it up as I went along. Again, there is a reference to every song on the album and prints are available through the link in my bio. • • #madonna #bedtimestories #takeabow #humannature #madamex #queenofpop #comic #comics #comicart #fanart #art #illustration #illustrator #digitalart #photoshop #instagay #artistsoninstagram #artist #gayboy #artwork #gayartist #instaart #comicbookart #artofinstagram #artistic #artoftheday #madonnaart #queen

Madonna – Erotica Comic Cover Project • • 90s Madonna is my favourite Madonna. The progression of Erotica, Bedtime Stories and Ray of Light is perfection. I find it difficult to listen to any of these songs out of the context of the album. It’s one of those records that should be listened to in full to get the best out of it. In my opinion those are the best kinds of albums. I think this was the second Madonna album I owned after I was initiated via Ray of Light back in 98. • • I always knew I wanted to do this one in black and white. That’s the kind of mood I get from it – city life, night life, jazz clubs, smoke, wet pavements. Again, there is a reference for every song on the album. • • Prints available through the link in my bio. • • #madonna #erotica #rain #badgirl #newyork #fever #madamex #queenofpop #comic #comics #comicart #fanart #art #illustration #illustrator #digitalart #photoshop #instagay #artistsoninstagram #artist #gayboy #artwork #gayartist #instaart #comicbookart #artofinstagram #artistic #artoftheday #madonnaart #queen
