To give you a quick idea of what they (and by they I mean the lovely Richard Morris) do. It is a private foundation that promotes and helps singer/songwriters and humanitarian causes help each other. In a nut shell, you donate money by buying the song (so you get some damn good music for your donation) a portion goes to the artist and a portion goes to the charity and a portion goes back to the foundation to continue on their great work. Win, win, win. For a more rounded idea and to listen (and buy you cheap skates) to some great music please check out his website. S4
So, where do I fit in? They are now trying to tie in visual artists, and their interpretations of certain songs. Hence Artists by Artist. This is a new aspect to the whole S4 thing so I will let you know more when I know more. Basically I was given three amazing songs to listen to but only one really spoke to me. I loved it. It is by an amazing artist called Luke Brindley and his song Our Year will be available to down load soon via the S4 website. I will draw (and hopefully not eff up) what this song means to me. This picture will then be reproduced on various merchandise and available to buy. I am fairly sure this is how it works,
Anyway, I am blown away to be asked to do this (and to be called and artist, you have no idea how hilarious I find that) and I have no idea how my style of drawing will interpret this lovely song and not trivialize it, but damn I want to try. I hope Luke likes it too.
