I did this drawing because I love MGMT!!!I never stopped listening to Oracular Spectacular and now I can't stop listening to Congratulations.I'm glad that there are no songs like Kids and Time to Pretend in this album, not that I didn't like them but EVERYONE liked those songs and I think that most bands would probably try to write more songs like that for their second album but instead Congratulations is nothing like that.

I'm continuing getting inspired by artists on flickr.Brandi Strickland (Paper whistle) is another genius I discovered a long time ago but I just noticed that she uploaded some new work which is as magical as always.

Since I'm still unemployed and running out of money,I have to stay in my room most of the time and because I've been obsessed with Flickr for more than a year now,I've been looking at everyone's photostream trying to find inspiration.Today I discovered John Fogarty,a New Jersey-based artist.I realised I spent more than an hour looking at his entire photostream, trying to imagine what goes through his mind when he's painting,drawing and making collages.He combines colours and shapes in such a beautiful and dreamy way, it makes you feel like there is something underneath the painting and if you look really close it might take you to another dimension.
Here is the link to his Flickr account and a link to an interview he did recently:

For last two months I have been looking for a job that will help me pay the rent and survive in London.I have been doing some work experience for free as and some extrawork and I was supposed to work as an extra for 3 weeks for a big film but most days got cancelled so I only worked for 5 days.I think my days in London are coming to an end since there's nothing I can do here anymore.While I was handing out CVs to shops,music venues,coffee shops and bars..I went to American Apparel and got the little lookbook that they have been giving out for free.I really liked the pictures so I illustrated them.
I found the two last ones at Time Out Magazine and I really liked the clothes so I illustrated them.
