Bela Lugosi's Dead by misfitmalice Bela Lugosi's Dead by misfitmalice
My own tribute to vampires, Bela Lugosi (The best Dracula) and the goth/rock band, Bauhaus that wrote one of the best alternative song of all time and which the title came from.

Mon hommage aux vampires, à Bela Lugosi (Le meilleur Dracula) and le groupe goth/rock Bauhaus, qui a écrit une des meilleures chansons alternatives de tout les temps et dont le titre de l'illustration a été tiré.

Done with black Gesso, paint, tapes, scanned typo, the logo of Bauhaus and Bela Lugosi himself.

Fait avec du Gesso noir, de la peinture, du ruban à masquer, de la typo scannée, le logo de Bauhaus et Bela Lugosi lui-même.

Lyrics/Paroles :

White on white translucent black capes
Back on the rack
Bela Lugosi's dead

The bats have left the bell tower
The victims have been bled
Red velvet lines the black box
Bela Lugosi's dead

Undead undead undead

The virginal brides file past his tomb
Strewn with time's dead flowers
Bereft in deathly bloom
Alone in a darkened room
The count
Bela Logosi's dead

Undead undead undead

Bela Lugosi (Béla Ferenc Dezsõ Blasko), R.I.P. 1882-1956.

I love the antiquated, burlesque quality of your work. It just gets better with each and every incarnation. By the way, Bauhaus is supposed to be releasing a new record called "Go Away White" in early March 2008. Should be interesting to see how they have progressed...
