“The artist is by necessity a collector; he accumulates things with the same ardor and curiosity [with which] a boy stuffs his pockets. He borrows from the sea and from the scrap heap; he takes snapshots, makes mental notes, and records impressions on tablecloths and newspapers—why one particular thing and not another, he may not know at the time, but he is omnivorous. He has a taste for children’s wall scrawling as appreciative as that for prehistoric cave painting.”—Paul Rand, 1955, via Steven Heller
oh snap! austin chronicle’s music staff just released their top ten albums lists – i’ve had the pleasure of designing cover art for some of the killer albums on this list:
Suzanna Choffel’s ‘Steady Eye Shaky Bow’
Golden Bear’s ‘Alive’
Leatherbag’s ‘Yellow Television’
thanks so much for letting me be a part of your projects! ♥
my work playlist is pretty saturated with bon iver as it is, but the track ‘holocene’ off of his newest, self-titled album just destroys it for me. now that there’s a video out for the song, my desire to move to a small fishing village in some nordic country has become even more pressing.
feast your ears and eyes, babes:
