creativity, drawing, free, giveaway, illustration, music, Val Webb
What’s your favorite “studio soundtrack”? I like to draw while listening to my favorite Celtic band, Mithril. Their music — sometimes pensive, sometimes get-up-and-dance exuberant — never fails to refresh and inspire me!
Recently, I had the privilege of creating artwork for the interior sleeve for their new CD, “Along the Road.” Eels in sinks! Wailing banshees! Giant turnips! An illustrator never knows what the day may hold…
I’d like to share their new CD, “Along the Road,” with my other artist friends, so I’m giving away two. You can keep one, and give the other away on your own blog or facebook page. (I’ll gladly mail the CDs anywhere, so feel free to join in, wherever you are.)
Simply leave a comment to enter. I’ll select the winners through random.org on Friday. Enjoy!

I stumbled upon your blog just in time to see a post with a give-away! What are the odds? Your art work is so charming. I love the calendar pages!
With all the unexpected events in life, some being challenging to our wish for what we perceive to be stability, art and music in our lives is a constant, and a joy.

I’ll throw my hat in the ring! Isn’t it fun that the group has chosen a Tolkien-based, rather than Celtic name? Or did JRR use a proper Celtic word to name the sword?
Lovely artwork–what a fun assignment to work on!

I’ve never heard of this group, but I do love Celtic music thanks to my Irish husband.

I believe this music is very inspiring! Just look what you create!
We celebrate St. Patrick’s Day a week later (well, two weeks in a row) here in Quebec City. The parade happens tomorrow, in order to share the fun with the big parade in Montreal. What a perfectly timed give-away post! Count me in, though you may want to ship to a U.S. address. 🙂
Congratulations to Dana Carey of Bretagne, France, who was randomly selected to win the Mithril CDs! And huge thanks to everyone who joined in.
