Does music affect/influence your art?
For me, at times, it does.
Music tends to evoke certain attitudes in me that I try to convey in my work. Let's say I'm drawing Jesus. I'll listen to some gospel music. I'll listen to some rock or rap (preferably Papa Roach or Mystikal) if I'm drawing action. If I'm drawing Wifey, I'll listen to "Crazy Bitch" by Buckcherry (don't worry, she loves the song). Or if I'm just trying to create something with no initial direction, I'll listen to jazz to get me focused and the creative juices flowing.
I don't always listen to music when I draw. But with a wife, 4 kids and a dog, my headphones are my friends!
(i go through about 2 or 3 in a year. headphones. not wife and kids lol)
So how about you guys and gals? Do any of you listen to music when you're doin you art thang? If so, what type of music do you listen to?
