Hozier had me since I heard his first melancholey chords in “Take Me to Church” which was featured in an ad for a Korean perfume. Weird how such a beautiful song could find it’s way into a random beauty ad in Asia…
Another challenge from my illustrator’s challenge list suggested that I create something while listening to a song. Since I had recently become obsessed with the song “From Eden,” that was my first choice.
then, I ventured into the first Hozier song I ever heard…
Finally, I landed on “Work Song,” - which is an absolutely mesmerizing music video. Go watch it. Now.
My mother wasn’t a huge fan on the skulls, but dammit it’s fulfilling to sketch a skeleton in colored pencils. Sorry Mom, it’s just what came out!
I love exploring this early-American, country-life, farmhouse style. I’m drawn to a lot of artists who have a skewed way of drawing perspective (or maybe just a lack of drawing in perspective.) I’m also loving bright colors, patterns, and night skies with constellations. And colored pencils are loving me these days.
