Colortones 002 - Front Cover

Colortones #002 - Back

To be honest, this mixtape had been sitting around since the first episode was published; the holidays felt like a perfect blur, and this mix felt more like summer than winter, causing me to reflect upon it longer than necessary. My good friend Shawna (whom this mix was made for) has been ever so patient and passing the time making pretty stuff as usual. In an interview from Convention Magazine, she discussed how music influences her work:

“Music influences every part of my work! Depending on what I listen to, the drawing is shaped by that sound. My earlier work, a self portrait series called Phases, was created solely from one day of serious claustrophobia, being sick, and listening to the words of Cocorosie. My Girl-Animal pieces were inspired by songs with samples from sounds of nature – such as Yeasayer and Fever Ray. You can throw me some crazy electro-pop-dance shit and I will get feisty – well, my art does. I bet my viewers can pinpoint what genre of music I was listening to with each piece.”

With any luck, this mixtape will result in more similarly-influenced work from not only Shawna, but anyone else listening. Be sure to check out her website for more inspiration, and enjoy the mix!
