What is Song of the Week?        

'Song of the Week' is an ongoing side project combining two major passions — portraiture & music. Each week(ish) I pick a new song I want to show some love for and create a portrait to accompany it. The song is put on the Song of the Week Spotify playlist and the portrait is uploaded to Instagram and the SOTW website — more often than not with a Reel showing the artwork's creation.

Once a month a Special Guest is invited to Pick their Song of the Week. So far these have included Kalita Records, Paul Camo from NTS Radio & Gavin Lucas from Amateurism Radio among others.

By nature of the playlist updating weekly it means the portraits need to be created fairly quickly —  providing the perfect opportunity to embrace experimentation, try new processes & accept imperfections that may otherwise be ironed out in commercial work.
