Light & Ideas

My good friend Dylan Jones and I started yesterday on a collaborative project which in the future will manifest itself as a music video (my animation / Dylan's music). We spent about an hour jamming -- Dyl playing, me drawing, and both of us talking in between about the concepts which tie everything together. The theme is "ideas," in particular ideas as represented by the symbol of the lightbulb ("Eureka!" cried Edison). Our protagonist is some sort of inventor/big thinker with a lightbulb shaped head, and some of Dyl's recordings come from the sounds of actual bulbs in action.

A proper place for our project on the web is in the works, updates will follow! In the meantime, enjoy some sketches:
