This is my last inspirational post for the school semester on this blog! I have gone through so many inspirational artists, books, and people, and I almost have run out! But, during this semester I have discovered more and more amazing artists and people that have inspired me to keep on going for my dream, or had just made the road more bearable. 😉
This year, I have asked artists for advice as to how to better my artwork. I have posted a while back a response from Maxwell Atoms, the creator of the Grim Adventures cartoon, and have received another response from an artist here in Albuquerque named Lisa Casaus.

These sort of things give me hope! I have a low self esteem and put myself down more than what is normal So, reading these things helps me to keep on going! Here is a motivational piece of art made by Colleen Butters on Tumblr. I certainly love this one because it makes a lot of sense! Plus, the person wanting to give up is almost exactly like me! D:
I must keep on going to achieve my dreams!!! ToT

Now, I am happy to talk about a band whose music has brightened up my day, no matter how rainy and cloudy it may have been. A band whose music makes my heart sing and my life just a little bit happier. And that band is Mumford and Sons.
Goodness, I have a deep love for this band. Their music is so beautiful and so full of emotion. Each band member compliments the other with their instruments, harmonizing voices, and all around good personalities. I know every song by heart and I have seen them in Taos, New Mexico and Guthrie, Oklahoma during their Stopover Tour. I discovered them just over a year ago, and I fell in love with them instantly.
Truthfully, I cannot explain how amazing their music is to me. Marcus’s acoustic guitar, mandolin, drum playing,and vocals…Ben’s piano, Ted’s contrabass, and Winston’s banjo playing just wrap up into a wonderful band that just makes the world much brighter. Along with their amazing music, they also are kind to others and care for everyone in the music community. In Taos, there are native indians who live there, and they got to know one in town and invited him to play his flute during the concert and play along with their song Awake My Soul. Then during I Will Wait, he danced and spinned along with their music, and they laughed with how great it all was. They loved his flute playing and hugged him as a thank you for joining them. I will forever remember that because they cared enough to invite someone to play with them, all for the love of music. Mumford and Sons will always have a special place in my heart, and they help me keep on going along my artistic journey.
Here is the music video of my favorite song, Winter Winds 🙂
