Sigur Ros (pronounced SIG-ger roas) is an Icelandic band with melodic, classical and atmospheric elements. The band got its name from vocalist Jon Birgisson's sister, Sigurros, who was born the same year the band formed in 1994. It translates to "Victory Rose." Their music is mostly sung in "Hopelandic," a language they invented. It's a sound the band says is meant to bring listeners "the beautiful landscape of their homeland."

"When I listen to Sigur Ros and close my eyes, this is what i see... ethereal immersion... exotic life coming up from the ground and from outerspace...
In this piece, I drew a mysterious ocean springing to life in the middle of the desert venue in which they performed, with the help of a robotic mystic...the red rocks amphitheatre is visible in the background...
Sometimes the hardest part of creating an original poster is not only coming up with the concept, but then transferring the idea and the artwork into a Silkscreen. 14 colors is a personal record for me."

Um..Birds of a feather?

You call it homework others might call it spending too much time looking for the unknown.

Anyways...
