italian postcards and american watercolors


i've been thinking about doing a series of watercolors that are inspired by some of my favorite songs. my lovely new friend emilee let me do the cover art for a sound production project of hers, and the song and video that were her inspiration just happened to be mine as well. and so i began the first installment of my new (only) series...ta da!

so that ^ is my drawing,

and this is my inspiration:



the song:
beirut's postcards from italy.

the music video:
directed by
Alma Har'el

concept:
home movies and "simple love" (as described by the afore mentioned emilee)

pepper rabbit

pepper rabbit can work a keyboard and pluck my heartstrings like nobody's business. their vocals sound so far away and dreamy; it's like being half asleep on warm spring day, listening to someone sing but you can't tell where the voice is coming from.

i haven't picked a favorite track yet, but you can listen here.
