You may think Street Cleaning Day is horrible, but trust me, you do not want to attend the mandatory Strex Corporate Halloween party…
Artist Note: I donno why, but I feel the need to explain this one.
Lauren and Daniel aren’t wearing halloween costumes, that’s how I picture them in my headcanon. As far as Kevin and Lauren are concerned, the height of fashion was in 1987 and so, their sense of style hasn’t evolved past that. I picture them both as Zack & Kelly, from Saved by the Bell, only trapped in the late 80’s.
Lauren is the stereotype of the corporate 1980’s business woman. Big hair, big shoulder pads and will destroy you if you get in her way. She doesn’t eat, but survives off of cocaine, cigarettes and diet coke.
Daniel is an advanced StrexPet that is essentially a technorganic executive stress ball for Lauren to take her frustrations out on.
I have a clear color palette in my mind for Night Vale- desaturated purples, blues and greys, so for contrast, I imagine Desert Bluffs in lots of bright neons. In my mind, Night Vale is a Tim Burton movie. A hauntingly gothic place where terrible things happen, but the horror is always implied or happens behind closed doors. The terror is always there, but you don’t necessarily always see it. In return, Desert Bluffs is a Eli Roth movie. A violent and gory town where the carnage is always on display. It’s in your face and you can not look away.
