What's Inspiring Me Right Now: The Ac!d Reign Chronicles


Although I've liked Grimes' music for a while, her album came out when I was going through a very different musical phase and deep in an obsession with a different band. So although I thought the visuals for the first video from her Art Angels album were interesting, I didn't pay a lot of attention to the rest of them. That is, until a couple of weeks ago, when Youtube autoplay did something good for once and started playing the video for World Princess Part II. The castle they were dancing around in looked awfully familiar, and I realised that it was Chepstow Castle, a place I've visited many times.  In fact, all but one of the video locations were places that I'm very familiar with and have spent a lot of time around at different points in my life. It was really eerie but strangely fascinating to watch a music video shot in all these places that I knew so well.

Nature Journal | January



This year I decided to keep a nature journal, with paintings and drawings of the animals, plants and weather I see each month. I thought it would be interesting to look back on at the end of the year, as well as being a great way of improving my art skills.
