I discovered La Blogotheque's Take Away Shows and, boy, have they been getting me through a lot of work sessions this week! It's an awesome music video series based in France where musicians perform in unusual places around town. Here's a few favorites.
Fleet Foxes - Blue Ridge Mountains

I love Bob Dylan and am so in awe of and inspired by these creative interpretations of his songs I've come across.
The first is Jason Holroyd's music video for "Like a Rolling Stone" using an overhead projector and photographic and typographic transparencies.
The second is Leandro Senna's hand-lettering stop-motion masterpiece of "Subterranean Homesick Blues." I've watched this video numerous times. Her hand-lettering is amazing!
Finally, you have to check out "Typo Dylan" - a website experience set to "It Ain't Me Babe." Watch Dylan's face appear as the lyrics are typed out on screen. Check it out here.

"Bigger Than Love," a song off the new album from Ben Gibbard (of Death Cab for Cutie, The Postal Service), has been stuck in my head! With the words to the song on repeat in my head, I decided to practice my hand-lettering skills with the lyrics.

I stumbled upon the music of The Lumineers about a month ago and their first full-length album has quickly become my summer soundtrack. Their folk rock sound is pretty infectious - think long ballads, foot stomping, hand clapping...So for this week's doodle, I took some lyrics from their song "Ho Hey" and worked on a little hand lettering. The background is a picture from the magical Cannon Beach, Oregon, that I took last summer. Here's the original music video if you are looking for a little blog reading soundtrack.
