It's Halloween in July! A song and a drawing.

So one of my best friends, Lucy, who is a very skilled musician (fun fact: she is also one of the three "Wyrds") has been doing this extraordinary weekly song-writing challenge through the Ignition Lab. I've been watching with delight as every week she writes, composes and records a new song, with a new baby no less! This week was especially fun, as she got to write about one of her favorite subjects: Halloween.

It was also fun because she had an image floating in her head during the process so decided that she needed some art to go with the music. She got in touch with me and commissioned a quick Medusa sketch to go along with the song. I hadn't even heard the song yet, but on Sunday I sat down  with my charcoal, then my wacom and came up with this:
Charcoal and Digital
And today I got to hear Lucy's song for the first time! It is fun and catchy and you should go listen too:
