Sheet Music Portraits

Thinking of different ways to get music into art, and picked a couple of songs I thought would have different sheet music. From experimental classical songs (The Death Waltz by John Stump) to prog rock like “Breaking Illusions” by Dream Theater. I printed out the sheet music then drew a portrait of the composer onto it. Doing it gave me notions like “Does the music we write or listen to affect how we look?” and “Does music affect our mental sense of calm even when we’re not listening to it any more?”. These were quick portraits so really not as good as my portraits could be, but still happy with the overall effect.
