the first contributor after this little break (illustrating books takes up a fair amount of time) is Andrew Kolb an illustrator from Ontario, Canada.
Andrew’s work is distinguished by a marked sense of playfulness, bold shapes and a deep love for (the geekier side of) pop culture.
If we were to lock him up in his studio, and he would prefer his studio if he did have to be shut in somewhere, these are his 8 choices to listen to.
Hoshi Neko by Yamantaka// Sonic Titan
I admit I don’t know what is being sung about, but I think that’s the point.
Jolene by Dolly Parton
The story is as much in her voice as it is in the words.
I’m Waiting for the Day by the Beach Boys
These next two songs fall into a category I really like: sad songs that sound happy.
We’ve got a groovy thing goin’ by Simon & Garfunkel
My Girls by Animal Collective
This whole album just makes me feel like I’m living 10 minutes from now.
Headache by Metz
The roller coaster that starts at 1:30 is pretty great.
Rockers to Swallow by Yeah Yeah Yeahs
These last two fall into another category I’m fond of: the first 5 seconds make me believe I can do anything.
Tell ‘em by Sleigh Bells
Although he spends most of his time in his studio already, being locked in there would completely change his attitude towards being a recluse.
But if given the choice, he would prefer his studio over any other room.
As long as he gets to take “the current Nintendo handheld gaming system (with games) to play, Darwyn Cooke’s Parker series to read, Edgar Wright’s Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy to watch, and a McCain’s Deep ‘n Delicious chocolate cake for company. I think that’s only 4 so either the games will count as one or I’ll have another cake.”
