On the Road with Saint Motel...

Or my life as a kidding!

Thank you for joining our blog hop...I'm so excited to help promote the Indie band "Saint Motel" , a LA based band. This is a collaboration put together by Matt and Vicki Chrisman to help promote the bands new CD in a art/crafts sort of way, using the idea of the newest CD "Voyeur". Vicki, being the music lover she is, jumped at the opportunity and asked  several artists to create a project.


"With sophisticated savvy and singularity, the Los Angeles quartet Saint Motel has built a formidable reputation on the back of inventive indie pop and wildly fun live shows. Mixing blistering pep with unique flair and rousing rhythms, Saint Motel’s aural catharsis is pure bliss with a twist of cynical humor."....Review 8/3/2012 by Rudyard's British Pub

The idea for this project was to create a piece or craft design that reflects how the album translates to me, what it is to be a "voyeur". So without further ado here is my interpretation.
