Illustration Friday: music



I have created many music-related images for record labels, bands, The San Diego Chamber Orchestra and I even painted a music house. This image is for the music blog I am a member of called "Kings of Maybe."When our fearless leader Asperezas asked me to make a new header for the 1 year Anniversary, I knew I had to make a crown of buildings. Our group is small but good and they have turned me on to some great music that I LOVE! My new fave is Just Say Yes by Snow Patrol posted by flor. I am lucky to be part of this wonderful tribe and hope for many more years of good music and inspiring videos. This is our new honorary member and crown model :)

Hey Val!!! Great little story along with your creative crown. It's so great to be involved in music the way you are. I truly believe that music and art are soul mates in the world of imagination.

Forget diamond tiaras--I'll take creative whimsy any day--I love wearable art! And especially when modeled by such a canine cutie!

I am so glad I found your blog with the IF music theme today. The crown and the story behind it is a treat today.
I also watched your video and I love your houses. They are unique and fresh and wonderful.
And that's a happy dog.
