So, I bought myself a new scanner, yay (Canon Lide 220)! As well as a pair of new headphones (Sennheiser HD 419, the earmuff type kind of things). This means that now I can completely lose myself in the happy land of music and swirling galaxies created with pencil strokes. My favourite thing, really.
It's absurd, but through all these years, I've had only poor earbuds and no scanner of my own! This has probably limited my taste in music. What's more, I got used to scanning my pieces at the university library, nervous that some of the hardworking students would raise their eyebrows at my esoteric symbols. Of coure they couldn't care less!
Now I can draw and scan in the safety of my own home. This suits my generally hermitlike existence, creating a pleasant self-contained sphere of activity. This encourages me to draw more. I might even consider creating more risky stuff now, gasp! Blood, entrails and bare skin! Or embarrassingly cutesey stuff. Or absurd things I would otherwise not consider worth a trek to the library. Or all of them rolled into one!
If anyone of you would have any electronic music, pop, ballads or female vocals to recommend to listen to while making art, now is the time!
