my creative space
i feel like i've been making paper leaves for weeks! i finished up this piece and have leaves left for a few smaller ideas i have in mind. first i have another plan for this. creative multi-tasking. so for today my creative space is digital. i can wash the glue and ink from my hands for a few hours. still working on the music-related project, i am putting together an album cover.
i'm working out the fonts and text placement (the above is only for vague markers) which usually pitches me into a perfectionist's fit. it's funny because working with text only is fine. it's just the act of finding the perfect way to express an idea with words along with a piece of art that makes me a lunatic.
for some thursday listening, the mondo boys have put together a late-summer-push mix.
“WEIRD SUMMER” was created exclusively to get you through those last few incredibly sticky days of the hottest god damn summer you can remember. Fuel for the fire. Grab that boom box, hit the beach, and turn up the volume. Best served before 9.21.2009. Mucho take it easy." - MB
i love making mix tapes but am so terrible at sequencing from one track to the next. i tend to give up and just throw songs i want on there at random. the flow of this is inspiring.
