Of Music and Colour

I bought music today. An oldie I have been meaning to buy for ages, and an album I look so much forward to get to know properly. I linked to a crazy, amazing video with her (and "Buttons") about a year ago (I think by reference of Mansuetude, actually) and now she has an album out. What an album. (What a lady.) I love the album already—and we only just met. The video, unfortunately, is not availible on YouTube anymore (It was the one with the rubberband, the plastic, the clothes-pegs). I hope you came across it. Anyhoo; Sia. And her website. And a festival interview. (A while after posting, I found the video here :-) Yay)

Of Word and Colour

While leaving word with my fellow bloggers, I enjoy the word verifications. The computer who generates them comes up with great words, like califlat and terrer, and I always fantasize that one day I will get a word that means something and is completely suitable for that very moment! :-) Has it happened to you?

I seem to hear you

Are we there yet??

I tried to think it differently this year ("'Tis winter, and will be for a few months more"), but it caught up on me. The urge for Spring! Usually it hits me around January 2nd-January 3rd, so perhaps I should be proud that I made it all the way to the 21st this time. From now on, and to the first warm sunbeams make me hesitate with the double-double wollen sweaters, I'm all "Issit warm yet?—issit spring yet?—arethe flowers up yet?". Well—Can't help it. Can't wait!

In Black & White

I'm working on some ink illus for a project these days. I can't show you yet, but I want to show you one in the same style, that I did for a book cover last year. It's H.C Andersen—do you know him? He's our countrys National Poet (or one of them :-)
The cover turned out completely different. So now this is a drawing-in-a-drawer. (I bet there are a lot of those world-wide. I have a few myself :-).
A gem of a book. And super-cool posters.

So this is what it feels like ...

to be selfemployed, I mean. It's nice. Great, actually! I've been busy these first two weeks. I feel so grateful.

Alas—the light is gone. So workspace now -- illu tomorrow. (False light is weird).
Check out Kristin Cammermeyers wonderful work (the whole thing is in Flash—you can go to portfolio). Via My Love For You.
Oh! And is this ever a treat! WAUW!
Last— well, I know it's not nice to laugh at people, but I couldn't help myself. (I don't even think they were kidding:-)
See you tomorrow.

Music and Sweet Cardamom Coffee, to stay pls.

Grinding coffee beans for a huge glass of coffee with hot milk (and—I confess—a spoon fulla sugar), I threw in 3 cardamom pods with the beans. Yum.
The day before New Years, I came across Analogik's not-so-new album Søens Folk (roughly translates to Men of the sea). Wow. Couldn't get over it. Here's a track from the album; God Russik (~Good Russin (yes)). Analogiks website. And MySpace. Yum.
Flora Douville linked to another great artist: Emilíana Torrini. Top right on her site, you can listen to a number of tracks. Umn-Yum.
If you're up for it, please check these two Danish electronics: Hej Matematik and Spleen United.
I'm all music'ed out now:)
