#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.

You can go and listen to more of his stuff here:

#FollowFriday – Keira

For a while I have been taking the opportunity on Friday to share some of my internet favourites with you, this week I would like to share the work of someone who is not only one of my internet favourites, but a real life one too.

Keira Heil is an incredibly skilled artist and writer, and I can’t recommend his social media account highly enough.  If you are looking for beautiful, detailed drawings to top up your creative bank account then you can find them here:

Keira has very kindly given me permission to post some of his awesome work here.  Below are just some of my favourites, there are so many to choose from.

Keira has a love for Sci-Fi and Comic art and it shows through in his dramatic and graphic style of drawing.  A few years ago we jokingly made up a character together called the Haberdasher, and you can find my attempt at a cover here.

Keira and his lovely partner Alex, also happen to own a plant and coffee shop in Devon, if you enjoy Instagram accounts with strong and fresh aesthetics then I would recommend checking out the Crown and Cotton feeds too.
