When I step into this project, I didn’t know that a cover of this song would be included. Being myself a HUGE fan of Peter Sinfield’s poetry, it was an amazing surprise for me!
I’ve always loved this song recorded by Emerson, Lake and Palmer. For this particular lyrics, I was trying to capture the concept of two lovers who don’t tell how much they love and need each other and they end up accepting the situation in resignation until the love fades away.
I’m was deeply touched when Peter Sinfield sent me feedback about the work: “How delightful. Thank you for the all the care and skill you have put into this illustration. I was touched and intrigued by your particular interpretation of “C’est La Vie” to see how you had taken the piece beyond its original form of a study in melancholy.”
