Idle teen

This series was inspired by the song “A Dustland Fairytale” by the Killers. The song is about the naivety of young love and doubt that goes along with a relationship. “Out here the good girls die” is a line that always weighs heavy on me; the way I see it is the girl in the story being suicidal. But death could always be symbolic as well; the death of a relationship, or the loss of innocence from growing into such a dark mindset. I wanted to take it into a “Virgin Suicides” direction; illustrating the boy’s romanticization of her as some troubled soul that needs to be saved.
