Just for the hell of it I thought I’d share the playlists I’ve made based around the songs I choose to draw each week - I end up supplementing them with other songs that I think deal with similar subject matter or use similar lyrical imagery, and they help inform the final image. I think I’ll start sharing each playlist I make along with the drawings every week.



These heart swells, these contexts in your head


Song this week is Red Socks Pugie by Foals.
Sorry for the late update, I was sick last week and managed to completely lose track of time until midnight on Thursday.

And if it drives you mad, it’ll probably pass.


Next up: ‘Orpheo Looks Back’ by Andrew Bird. I’ve had some variation of this image circulating in my stupid brain since the summer and only just got around to throwing it down on paper.
Break it Yourself came out almost exactly a year ago and I love it very much.

Some winter dreams make you dive and dive and dive down.


First drawing - ‘Winter Fields’ by Bat for Lashes! Who I am seeing live in April, and I am super stoked for it because I’ve loved her since high school.

WELCOME TO BLOG

This is where I’ll be posting my weekly music drawings! First update next Friday.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – Vipassana (0 plays)

So I stare into this paper instead of sitting at a cubicle
Take all ugly shit inside and try to make it beautiful
Use the cement from rock bottom and make it musical
So the people can relate to where I’ve been
Where I’m going, what I’ve seen, what I’ve heard
From the guts, fuck the glory
Just a person on a porch putting it all into recording
Many in my past and many that came before me
I just keep walkin’ my path and blessed to share my story
