Sleeping At Last's newest album, Storyboards, has been on heavy rotation on my itunes lately. It's pretty much the most beautiful album I've heard since As Tall As Lion's self-titled masterpiece. Needless to say, it's been inspiring me like crazy. There's something to fall in love with in every song.
I'm sure this won't be the only drawing that will be inspired by this album, but I chose "Chandeliers" for this particular one...
Into the tide,
Where the sun fills our eyes,
Will remain in the place
Where our rare bird of grace appeared.
In our pale imperfect light,
Our palms will stabilize,
And your brightness
Will close our heavy eyes,
And we'll dream with you.
We'll dream with you.
Obviously not finished yet. It's going to have a bunch of waves in the background and a sun surrounded by stars at the top. I just wanted to post this because I think her hair is really cute.
I bought two huuuge pieces of paper (one of which is being used for the drawing above) at the art store today. I also bought a buttload of new Pilot pens and a new brush pen. It's ridiculous how happy pen shopping makes me. I'm a huge nerd about it, too. I can talk to the art store employees about different brands of pens for hours. (wow, it's weird to actually say/type that out.)
Oh, and since I like to pretend that I'm a photographer, I ran around outside my house after a huge storm yesterday evening and here are some of those shots...
