Music & Art

I know what you’re going to say. “Mike, music is ‘art’.” And you would be correct in that assumption. What I’d like to talk about here though is how one uses music while creating other kinds of art such as paintings, sketches, sculptures;the list is endless really. I’ve always found music to be an important ingredient in any art. Even back in my eighth grade art class I remember our teacher allowing us to listen to the radio during class when we were working on projects; sometimes she’d even allow us to bring in a cassette, for those unfamiliar with cassettes, they were the big thingbefore cd’s came out. Actually cd’s were already available but our teacher only had a tape deck on her small stereo so you work with what is available (hehe).

Listening to music while creating art doesn’t just make the time go faster, it also can be very inspirational; I’ve actually found myself at times while I’m painting & listening to music that I’ll move my graphic tablet pen in tune to the music I’m listening to; I won’t even notice

His best work is “Faces,” a montage of an American tap dancer, an actor a scientist, the composite between three famous comedians, the traditional cast members of a long running science fictionTV series, a former TV reporter, various rock stars, athletes and entertainers, and his friends. He does it by capturing pictures from videos, which can create really funny faces. He filled a year and a half of rendering faces of people who influenced him onto the single montage.

Aside from the montage, he has individual portraits of the lead singer from Babes in Toyland, a Russian gymnast, and a songwriter. He favors pencil, graphite, and charcoal for his works.
