"Another Day, Another Drawing."

Since I was a kid, music has always been a part of my daily routine.  I've said for years that, "music is my speed".  It motivates, relaxes and most importantly helps me formulate my thoughts.  Whatever it may be that I am doing throughout the day, music is right by my side as a guide to my speed of living.  Below is a quick day in the life and a few tracks I feel would best accompany these hours of a typical day.

8 AM. Quickly awaken from a vivid dream session by the iPhone alarm. Somewhat confused, somewhat inspired...Frankie P - Soul Improv

8:30 AM. Open the wardrobe closet, throw on a teeshirt and some paint covered vintage twil shorts, Head to the elevator and descend to the lobby and walk out the double doors. BLinded by the light, Take a quick right and stroll to the to the coffee shop, the city is empty and the sun is blazing...Spencer Garn - Vide Down  

9 AM. Head to the garage, hop in the truck, windows down, music blasting..  5 Minutes later, roll up to ABV (the studio / gallery) and review the to-do list for the day with the team and get moving on current projects...Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics - Feet On The Ground

10 AM - 2 PM. Non-stop output of creative content on multiple works in progress, super focused morning session, Time is of the essence...Kabao - Provocateur

2 PM - 3 PM. Lunch Break and off to the house to relax for 30 minutes and cook up one of my world famous panini's. Take a little time to catch my breath, formulate some thoughts on the couch before heading back to the studio. Ruby Velle & The Soulphonics - The Man Says

3 PM - 8 PM. Round two of the studio session, sketching, designing, drawing + painting, utilizing all mediums necessary to bring current visions to life. Full force till 8:00 PM.  Sam Rhansum - Terminado

8 PM - 10 PM. Head downstairs to the art studio, work on some new ideas, concepts, sketches and painting's that are in progress.  Spencer Garn - Black Cat In The Night

10 PM - 12 AM. Cut the lights, lock up the space, meet a few friends for some brews and listen to a few local dj's spin some tunes at a few spots around the city...The Hero Brothers - Git Out My Face

Head home, rest the head and repeat.
