I bring this up because the theme for Illustration Friday, this week, coincides with the name of the song: "Someday we'll reach the moon."

This is a composite of the Flash interface and a few of the elements that I illustrated before realizing I had no idea what to do next. The concept behind the video was, it would look like one of those toys that you push a button on and the music plays while the shapes move behind a textured screen. Even though this isn't a brand-new illustration, it IS the first time I've shown it to anyone who wasn't involved in the creation process, or close to me.
If you would like to listen to the song, head here: The Monkey Power Trio's 1999 album 'Chasing Monsters With Our Love'.
Someday I'll finish that animation. Someday. Someday.
I really think the idea behind the Monkey Power Trio is awesome. They are a group of friends who get together once a year, play music for a few hours and then turn it into an actual vinyl LP. They don't practice together at any other point during the year, and yes, it shows. Yet they still manage turn turn out some interesting songs. They plan to do this every year until they die. All of their music is also available at their site as free MP3s.
