What is Song of the Week?        

'Song of the Week' is an ongoing project by UK artist & illustrator Von. It combines two major passions — portraiture & music. Each week a new song is uploaded to the Song of the Week playlist with an accompanying portrait of the artist on Instagram, more often than not with a Reel showing the process that went into the artwork's creation.

By nature of the playlist updating weekly it means the portraiture needs to be quick providing the perfect opportunity to embrace experimentation, new processes & accepting imperfection.

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.
