For those who follow my many art projects, check in on my collaboration with Christopher the Conquered. He is still writing songs and I am responding to them with drawings and paintings. I recently went to see him play in Iowa City, and was reminded how much of a storyteller he is on stage. Continue listening in to the 100 songs project, with Chris’s music and my art:
I have just embarked on a new collaborative adventure with my dear, musical genius friend from the Midwest, Christopher the Conquered. These are a few examples of the types of drawings I will be creating in response to his music. Here is what he has to say about the project:
I am very excited to announce a new project I am undertaking, starting today, called Christopher the Conquered’s 100 Songs Project, in which I will write, record, and publish 100 songs over the course of the next year. Each song is based on individual fans of mine from around the world. I’ve always written from my own perspective; now I’m ready to look through the lens of others’ experiences.
Each song will be accompanied by an original illustration by visual artist Franky Frances Cannon, created in response to the composition.
