I don't care how cheesy it is, but Copeland has been one of the most artistically influential bands to me. The amount of drawings, doodles, and paintings inspired by Copeland songs/lyrics far outnumbers drawings inspired by other musicians. I'm obviously more than a little bit sad that they're breaking up, but I'm just glad I got to make it out to their final Toronto show and tell Aaron how much Copeland means to me. I gave him the drawing featured in the entry below this one and he said he still had the drawing I gave him last year. Cool!
I was at the front for all the bands, so I took the opportunity to take some photographs.
I'm A Sucker for A Kind Word
Yeah. It was a great show.
I'm on my spring break now, so I'm gonna get back on track with drawing shit. Huzzah.
Aaron Marsh's voice is unbelievable live. Holy wow.
I gave him my drawing and felt exceptionally lame. But I do think he liked it. He also gave me the setlist after the show which I know is a silly reason to get all happy and excited, but I'm an extremely silly girl.
Got Brightest in the encore. Un-fucking-real.
(add Brightest and Testing the Strong Ones to the end of that)
I'm seeing Copeland tomorrow, so earlier today I took a break from the Lydia painting (see below) and sketched out this little doodle in the middle of math class. As you can see, I clearly ripped off the dress. Whatever.
So, I chose to illustrate the song that first got me into Copeland, and that song is "Brightest". It reads, "she warms my heart" at the bottom, in case you couldn't read it. (:
I know it's plain. I'm going to try and work out some sort of background element... maybe...
