Best Records of 2012

It will come as no surprise to anyone ever that my favourite record of 2012 was Om's 'Advaitic Songs'.  They also played my favourite gig of the year too at the Scala.  And 'State of Non-Return' was my favourite song. So I drew the album cover.  With colours and everything.  And now I want to use lots of colours in my work so it wasn't an entirely pointless exercise either.

Other records I really liked were Goat's 'World Music' and Swans 'The Seer'.  And Can's 'Lost Tapes' was my favourite reissue.  Everything else was terrible.

'Holy Motors' illustration

My favourite film of the year was 'Holy Motors' so I've done an illustration.  It's not my best.  Denis Lavant has the kind of face I usually love drawing but the scale and angle of his head proved tricky.

I also loved 'Moonrise Kingdom', 'Searching for Sugar Man' and 'The Artist' (bit late getting to the cinema for that one...).
