Goodnight, Fair Lady

by Nathan Spoor

Talk about steely good looks. In addition to a 360-degree wraparound design, our metal travel mugs are crafted with lightweight stainless steel - so they're pretty much indestructible. Plus, they're double-walled to keep drinks hot (or cold), fit in almost any size cup holder and are easy to clean.


Goodnight, Fair Lady was the fifth painting of the Afterman: Ascension works that I created with Claudio Sanchez for the epic double album by Coheed and Cambria. We talked daily between studio sessions about the ideas and sketches, then eventually settled on a final idea and then I started the painting, never having heard the songs.

This was a pretty ominous piece, and one of the more disturbing ones for me. It's about what it looks like, the lady goes to a bar and the man she's meeting there drops something unwanted into her drink. Claudio wanted to really emphasize the evil nature of the moment so I had demons bubbling from the pill and lipstick on the glass to show she'd already drunk from it. We worked out the amount of demons, more, less, then more again, and found the perfect visual for his song.
