I made a book!

Oh My gosh I made a thing!  To be more specific I made an art book. 

If you have been with me for the 4 years I have been working on this blog, you will know that one of the subjects my doodles keep coming back to are mountains.  Mountain Faces is dedicated to my love of mountains. For the last 4 years I have posted a drawing a day, everyday on my online blog. ‘Sitting like a mountain’ has become key to this practice. Mountain Faces is a short expression of this. It’s small, it’s short and it’s sweet. Proving that art doesn’t have to be worthy to be worth sharing.

 

#FollowFriday – Gudjohr

Hey, do you like to have your ears pleasured while you draw?  Of course you do, who doesn’t.  Art and music just go together like Cagney and Lacey, Watson and Holmes, Columbo and… okay so that one didn’t work but you get the gist.  During Inktober, I am feeding my brain lots of good music in order to come up with ideas.

a1164701648_10I always listen to music or have a film on in the background when I am doing something creative.  I find it helps soothe the spirit and get the thinky brain ideas flowing.  Recently I have been having a secret love affair with Gudjohr.  He’s a Brighton based musician and his newest album between the blinks is particularly delightful.  I was very pleased he gave me permission to link to his work.  Alongside his music, I also really appreciate his cover art.  It’s trippy, cool and unexpected, which seems very fitting.
