Well it seems like in 3 weeks I've gone from sloppy digital painting to graphic design with no in-between. This weeks' is even more graphic-y then last weeks!
Also it seems like these take me a max of one day, it might be harder if I try a more painterly one (which my next idea I believe will be). it also appears I always do them on Thursdays. So I might start updating these on Thursdays.
So without further adieu: My Head is a Balloon
Myheadisaballoon/Kingbastard/Weeksy is a british indie electronic artist named Chris Weeks I found on newgrounds several years ago thanks to a friend. I've followed him ever since. he goes by a few different monikers, mostly so he has an option to release a few different types of style music. Kingbastard, his most developed, is based around electronic glitch type music. Weeksy is a soft, acoustic coffee shop type music. Myheadisaballoon is sort of a mix, a mix of electronic and traditional music in a friendly upbeat pop sound.
My Head is a Balloon is a song thats just him, an acoustic guitar, and happy. It's short, energetic, and sweet. A good spirit lifter. It's also full of visual ideas. On my many trips to class (about 4 of my music project pictures are going to be different versions of walking to class haha) in the spring, if it was a warm, sunny day and I was in a good mood, this song would play, and I'd sing along as I walked. Thankfully, I was always alone, because I sing like metal scraping against a boat hull.
It's just a genuinely enjoyable little tune, and it offered me a chance to do a more comic-style drawing, which in turn developed into the sort of construction paper cutout background you see. I think it turned out to be the best so far.
Also everyone should listen to Kingbastard
