strangers on this road we are on, we are not two we are one.

This past weekend I had the great pleasure of listening to and meeting two up and coming bands, 28 North and Hollis Brown. Not only were the guys super nice, their music was awesome! I may be finagling my upcoming trips to make time to see them again at Abilene this coming Sunday, after that they're touring all over the place! If you're in Rochester, you should join me there :)

Hollis Brown:

There's something to be said about the beauty of asymmetry. Sure, in our culture, the perception of "what is beautiful" lies mainly in symmetry, especially in faces. Take a look at many celebrities deemed "attractive", and look at how symmetrical their faces are. I, on the other hand, LOVE the little asymmetrical nuances that make a face unique, perhaps this is because my face has some asymmetrical features to it. I've been wanting to draw Thom Yorke again, I miss his weird, wonky eye. This is a quick sketch I did of him today.

Final note, The Onion's A.V. club is doing an AMAZING thing with their "undercover" project, and this one is my favorite. I'm a huge sucker for this song :)
