Vinyl Albums And Cassette Tapes: Why You Shouldn’t Stick A Fork In Them Yet!
Over the past week a fellow musician Erik Peterson and I got into some heavy vinyl and cassette chat over on Google Plus (Click if you need an invitation). He shared a few articles that were great food for thought if you are thinking of some alternative ways to release your album, have a fanbase that is receptive to these types of media or are looking at cracking a new marketing of people looking for new music on these formats.
For this drawing I used the song “Maybe I’m Amazed” as inspiration. The lyrics talk about a man who’s surrounded by a woman, he needs her, loves her, and asks her for help to understand what he feels. She’s always there for him and gives him love. This is what I want to show in my drawing “Completely Surrounded”. He is in the middle, surrounded by this woman who combs his hair (as a symbol of putting some order to his life, giving some meaning to all the things he does), treats him with love, and also depends on him and trusts him. By drawing all her hair around him I want to show how he is completely surrounded by her, how all his life is being influenced by this woman and the love she gives to him.

SAYING 'NO' TO IVORY TRADE (KENYA BURNS CONTRABAND IVORY)
On July 20 2011, Save the Elephants team led by the Founder and CEO, Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton attended a public event held at the Kenya Wildlife Service training school in Manyani to witness the burning of over 300 confiscated tusks and processed ivory, set on fire by Kenya’s President Mwai Kibaki. This move is a message to the world that Kenya is against any form of Ivory trade. The day also marked the first national celebration of the African Elephant Law Enforcement Day. Dr Iain Douglas-Hamilton was interviewed and took a strong stand on stopping the demand.
