Hey, here is what I found artistically inspirational this week!
1. My friend's song
I have this ex-coworker, also a friend, who's been making music for a while now, and he asked me to design a cover for one of his songs. I doubt I can share it here, but I will show some ideas I had for it. It's supposed to be a love-type song, 'though it's really just about sex with some crude lyrics that I don't care for. Regardless, it's a pleasant, good vibes tune that I like listening to and laugh at hearing my friend's voice. Music ideas to keep in mind.
2. Soot (artist)
This is an artist whose work I see ocassionally and it's usually Dragon Ball-related. I absolutely love the bright, full colours he uses to depict these characters and it's something to keep note of when I decide to work with markers/colour pencils.
This guy is part of the "trap" hip-hop genre that's been around for a while now. It's taken me this long to start listening to the genre because every person I've heard so far has been pretty terrible. I've always liked the music with its more elaborate compositions and vibe, but vocals on a song can make or break it, and most of the genre's rappers absolutely destroy it. I actually like him though and the music supporting him is absolutely lush and dark just how I like it. It's still strange/kinda trashy music, but eeeeehhhhhhhh. Definitely something to take out of it for my own music-making.
