Nontraditional update this week, but my most recent assignment for Advanced Illustration was to create an editorial illustration to accompany an article about Beyonce for Bitch Media.
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.

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