The music video for my song choice, Left Handed Kisses, by Andrew Bird & Fiona Apple was the inspiration for day 40 of The 100 Day Project. Not only was I captivated by the sound but I was also mesmerized by the dynamic between Andrew and Fiona in the music video. The idea to create a quirky portrait of the singers played on repeat in my mind until I drew it out…..

Well I’m not going to California but I was encouraged to use the song Going to California by Led Zeppelin as part of my 100 day project..
The song was a recommendation by a fellow Instagram connection. I was inspired by the music and soulful lyrics so I decided to illustrate it.. Thankful for the special song request and the curiosity to give it a try, because this art became one of my favorites on my 100 day journey.
Mixed media artwork: The figure created with watercolor, pencil, cut paper, (map of California) layered on top of a 5×7″ chip board with acrylic paint

During the month of August I will be posting some of my favorite illustrations from my participation in The 100 Day Challenge on Instagram
Day 85 of my 100 days of songs illustrated.
Song inspiration: Six Feet Under by Billie Ellish – “Our love is six feet under I can’t help but wonder if our grave was watered by the rain, would roses bloom?..”
In the video below I am using acrylic paint on 140 lb on cold press paper. If you notice a little difference in the drawing at this stage, I decided to change up the figure midway through the process because the image wasn’t working for me visually.
Working with mixed media, here I am adding watercolor to lower portion of artwork.
Thank you for taking the time to view my art and process.
