Artist With Synesthesia Puts Songs to Canvas - diymagazine

Artist Melissa S. McCracken uses her synesthesia to create beautiful works of art based on some of her favorite songs.

“The most wonderful “brain malfunction” of all is seeing the music I hear. It flows in a mixture of hues, textures, and movements, shifting as if it were a vital and intentional element of each song.”

From top to bottom, these three are works inspired by Radiohead’s “Karma Police,” Glass Animals’ “Flip,” and John Lennon’s “Imagine.” 

so last night shieldcas inquired about society6 deals to be prepared for over the weekend, and i got the memo about them today!

Today’s a full moon so it’s time to tear a sheet of wallpaper off your dining room wall, sharpen one of those fancy artist pencils you bought five years ago and are saving for “something special”, and Draw a Werewolf! Don’t forget to submit it here, and/or post it on Tumblr or Twitter with the tag #DrawAWerewolfDay


House Of Vans Chicago: Chad Kouri

Ever wondered what Chad Kouri would be doing had he not chosen the life of an artist? We got the skinny from the collage extraordinaire, right after his House Of Vans workshop, and dug into the real important questions…like whether he thought winter was better than Family Guy.
