Top 6 Audibles for My Creative Zone

tiki music

When I’m working on a big illustration project, I can spend many hours at my drawing table and in front of my computer. It’s quite solitary and I enjoy the zen state it creates. When that happens, I usually like complete silence, especially if I’m sketching. When I’m scanning all my sketches or redrawing them in Adobe Illustrator, I love to listen to something. Here are my favorite audibles at the moment.

Warpaint – The Fool or Exquisite Corpse
I think my favorite song is Krimson.

Clarissa Pinkola Estes, PhD – audiobooks
I love all her books. Seeing in the Dark, Women Who Run With the Wolves, The Faithful Gardener and Creative Fire all have unique stories and provide great encouragement.

Back Cello Suites performed by Robert Cohen or Yo Yo Ma
Suite #1 in G, Praeludium is my favorite.

Phantom Planet
I don’t think they’re together anymore. Bummer.
This one gets me in to trouble because I inevitably want to get up and play my drums.

New Yorker Fiction Podcast
I’m a fan of Joyce Carol Oates so I really enjoyed Louise Erdrich reading The Mastiff.

Chris Oatley Artcast
A former Disney character designer, Chris Oatley creates fun, inspiring and educational podcasts.

Those are my current favorites. Maybe you’ll enjoy some of them too. What are you listening to lately?

Happy listening and happy creating!
Karen
