Okay, I know this is supposed to be my portfolio/artblog. But here’s the thing: anyone who knows me knows that I also love music. If you come up to my desk while I’m working at some studio, odds are I’ve got tunes playing in the background. My iTunes is loaded with almost 70 GB of music. In addition to my art, it’s another big part of who I am.
So to that end, I thought I’d add some music links over in the sidebar. These are far from being the only bands and artists I like! They’re only a small handful of musicians who would leave a noticeable absence for me if they were removed from my iTunes and CD libraries. If you haven’t heard some of these performers, do yourself a favor and put something new in your ears! Maybe I’ll add to the list from time to time.
And of course, since this is supposed to be an artblog, I oughta post some art to go with this announcement, right? The illustration up top was part of an assignment I did for one of my classes back when I was attending Art Center, to illustrate and design a CD package. I had no Photoshop skills back then, so it’s all pen & ink with watercolors. Today, I’d probably still draw something like this conventionally, but I’d use Photoshop for the color.
