My last year’s contribution to The Sketchbook Project was Lyrically Inclined. This year, I continued the theme of visual journal pages inspired by lyrics from some of my favorite musicians. I have explained in my previous blog my love of music, despite my utter inability to sing, keep a rhythm, or play any form of instrument. As I did with my last sketchbook, I have also listed the artists and songs included in this year’s contribution to The Sketchbook Project.
