One of my favorite Rock songs of all time RIDERS ON THE STORM by the DOORS,its errie melody and lyrics still hold me in a trance when I hear it. This is my visual interpretation of the song.The tarot card THE CHARIOT, the Chariot reflects power of our unconscious needs and the importance of knowing how to direct them in a purposeful and powerful way. Ultimately this card is asking to take up the reins and understand what is driving us.I used some original photos, clip art and stock photos to create it.

Riders on the storm
Riders on the storm
Into this house were born
Into this world were thrown
Like a dog without a bone
An actor out on loan
Riders on the storm

Theres a killer on the road
His brain is squirmin like a toad
Take a long holiday
Let your children play
If ya give this man a ride
Sweet memory will die
Killer on the road, yeah

Girl ya gotta love your man
Girl ya gotta love your man
Take him by the hand
Make him understand
The world on you depends
Our life will never end
Gotta love your man, yeah

    Very inspired and creative work ! That song used to really psyche me up for surfing because it was in a legendary surf movie from the early 1980’s called Storm Riders.

  • Thanks James, didn"t know you were a surfer, I love to surf too, I’m going to look up that movie and watch it, Cheers
