This man in de moon was featured in Sugar/Jackson’s Betrayal on the Merry Golden Tree video. The song is an original re-telling of a centuries-old folk song and so it was fitting for the visual to be stylistically in-step with old printing styles like those of the song “broadsides” from way back when.

Printing presses often used woodcut prints for their graphics so I tried to emulate these while drawring in plain ol’ Photoshop.
