First Aid Kit for Amelia's Mag

First Aid Kit, graphite, watercolor, & acrylic ink on watercolor paper, 11 x 10", 2012.
I worked on another illustration for Amelia's Magazine. This time I drew First Aid Kit, a folk group comprised of two sisters, Johanna and Klara. I hadn't really heard of them before this illustration, but have listened to them a lot since; their voices are incredible!

My illustration was based on the video for their song, Emmylou:

The video had a 70s feeling, and I wanted that to also come through in my illustration. It also felt nice to paint something in warm desert colors when the city turned to ice this past weekend. When I heard this kind of country sounding song I assumed that these girls were from somewhere like Texas... It turns out that I was way wrong. They're from Sweden!

They'll be in Philadelphia at the end of March; it would definitely be nice to see them live. All of the videos of their live performances are very impressive.

To read the review of their album in Amelia's Magazine go here:
