on repeat: Neko Case


Today sees this week's "on repeat". Tomorrow will see a new daily outfit post - but for today - here is Neko Case's music video for Maybe Sparrow from her 2006 album Fox Confessor Brings the Flood. The illustration in this video is just gorgeous. I aspire to one day be able to draw like this. I wish I was capable of learning multiple things all at once. Right now my main creative focus and outlet is fashion and my shop and this blog. Once I get more into the groove of this blogging thing - I hope to take up different kinds of art more seriously. I have been fooling around with pixel art a bit lately which is so much fun - but I'd also like to go deeper than that and learn how to draw properly. I hope for some art classes in my future.

I love Neko Case - no matter what mood I am in I can listen to any of her albums. I have always loved folk music and these past few years I have been sort of really drawn country-style music. To me, Neko Case is the perfect combination of both.

This song reminds me of my mom. She is a "bird nerd" (Erin, I don't take credit for this slogan) and is always playing on team bird. She chases the cats away from the backyard and litters the entire vicinity of our house and cottage with sunflower seeds. She takes brilliant photos of birds, pictured below is a photo she took of a sparrow in our backyard.

Personally, I love her chipmunk photos best...

  3. I'm in the library and, upon seeing the chipmunk photo, I laughed. No joke. People stared. :)
