Sketching to music is something that I’ve done my whole life so I thought spending some serious time on the idea would be an interesting concept. My main goal is a simple one; find a way to connect illustration and music.
I believe the most prevalent idea that came from this project is that of connection. Take synesthesia for example: Synesthesia, and all that it entails, is a connection between two different senses, the most common being that of sound and color. When hearing a note played, a certain color will flare up and stay with that note. While most of us can’t claim to have any form of synesthesia, I believe that the innate desire to connect what we hear with what we see is something we do on a daily basis.
This project demonstrates that connection and how, in many cases, both forms of art benefit from the other to make a whole new experience. For example, many of the works of art may have a darker theme to them, but when observed with the music the feeling becomes hopeful, inspiring, or even humorous. With the added element they become something more then they were and give the viewer a new experience as a whole.
