Lana Del Rey Inspires Comic Book Based on Her Songs: ‘Baroque Pop’
A comic book inspired by the music and aesthetics of Lana Del Rey is nearly off to the
Red Stylo Press will publish an anthology of comics based on Lana Del Rey's songs, according to Bleeding Cool, following the success of a similar book called "Angel With a Bullett," a four issue series inspired by the music of Tom Waits.
According to the project's Kickstarter campaign, the eighty-page comic book titled "Baroque Pop" will be comprised of "a carefully curated selection of short form comics and illustrations celebrating love, loss, success, and change by comic creators who came together after finding mutual solace and inspiration in her music."
The anthology, which will be printed at 7x7 inches in order to resemble a vinyl record cover, will feature stories influenced by songs like "Summertime Sadness," "God Knows I Tried," "Body Electric" and more.
"'Baroque Pop' is both an homage to Lana as well as a testament to the imagery and symbolism this modern day muse draws out of artists and writers," the Kickstarter release reads.
"Her melodies invoke a sense of longing and wonder and endless hope. Mixed with instrumental tracks that feel cinematic in scope, her tunes practically invite the imagination to run wild painting tiny pictures with the emotions released in every bar, in every hook, until each album resembles a mosaic reflecting our deepest desires and secrets with each subsequent listening."
