Music and Art Meet

My rock star husband was on national TV last week - Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, ending an 11 week U.S. and Canadian tour. During the tour Alan got to hang out with one of our friends – award winning illustrator Joel Nakamura who is known for his unique style: a blend of folk art and sophisticated iconography rendered in a neo-primitive technique. Joel’s artwork graced several of Alan’s CD covers.

I asked Joel for a personal piece to accompany this post. He said, “Inspiration can come from mundane things - like my son eating gummy bears. I thought I want to try and paint an Octopus made of that stuff.”
