Whenever I get an order, I brainstorm by listening to music. Normally I enjoy classical concertos and modern covers of them, but I find it helpful listening to mainstream radio for a fresh change, as well. Don’t get me wrong, I am not always “Ooh, can’t do without my Bach!” I just like the feeling it gives me.
Regarding the fact that most my designs are based on lyrics and words of some type, pop music gives me major inspiration.
I came across Lana del Rey, she is gorgeous and has a mythical voice. I went crazy over her album, Born to Die.
But my favorite is Video Games. You can listen to it here.
The music is great, and the composition, but what I like most are the lyrics. Heaven is a place on Earth with you. Does it get any more real than this?
I don’t know, but I like the idea of living the moment, here and now. So why “search” for a heaven outside of this world, for the lack of a better word? It can be as peaceful and heaven-like as you can stretch your imagination to be.
Happy week, everyone, and remember, Heaven is a place on Earth!
