Art Inspired by Music

I put out the call to my social media friends and followers once again, this time asking for music-inspired art and/or poster and album art. What I got was a rad and eclectic mix of poster designs, paintings, and photography. Check it out.

A poster for Mixed Use Media & 22Thoughts in San Antonio, TX. Submitted by @PunkSoda

"Tangerine Trees and Marmalade Skies" - One of 2 lovely Beatles-inspired floral paintings submitted by Brandi Solomon.

"Sky of Blue and Sea of Green" - Beatles-inspired floral painting submitted by Brandi Solomon.

And, though this submission isn’t fine art, is certainly is creative design and would make an awesome gift for any music lover. Plus, I can’t pass up an opportunity to show off the seriously cool work my friends are doing. These coasters by Melissa Stewart at Crab Apple Designs are made from upcycled vintage sheet music.

(Click the photo for a link to the Etsy listing, where you can purchase this mega-cool coaster set.)

Next post theme in this series of curated art, just in time for Valentine’s Day: LOVE!

Have you heard?! Glam, Glitter, & Gore is coming!

Hey, friends! Did you know that the first-ever (hopefully first annual) Glam, Glitter, & Gore fall festival and shopping event is happening next weekend? It’s going to be absolutely awesome, filled with Halloween-y goodness and tons of incredible art, craft vendors, and fashion designs by talented local people.

Longer post to come soon with more details.

Meanwhile, here’s the FB event page, where you can find more info: http://on.fb.me/GGG1023
