My inspiration came from Ukrainian folk art, since Gogol Bordello's lead singer is Ukrainian, and I couldn't resist indulging in those beautiful florals, bright colors, and lush decoration. Their music is fairly cooky and colorful, but quite rough in some ways as well, so I didn't want to make it all smooth and fluid, as in traditional Ukrainian folk art, and once again my handy-dandy grease pencil came to the rescue. I'm really liking it as drawing tool, as opposed to graphite, since I'm far less likely to get fussy and overly concerned with the perfection of my lines.
If you're curious, here are some examples of my inspiration:

More soon, promise! Some of my recent bizzy-ness is going to start coming to fruition in the next few weeks, which is super exciting.
