Maybe you noticed, maybe you didn’t, but this past weekend the summer Olympics began in Beijing, China, where the best of the best are duking it out in a big ‘ol friendly athletic competition. Because I like to mix my sports with indie music (refer to Indie Ear Madness ’08), I wanted to do the same for the summer games–so here’s my gimmick this time around:
During the course of the summer Olympics I’ll be taking some of the biggest names in indie music and drawing notebook-sketches of them in an Olympic event that (I think) perfectly suits them. Not only will this place your favorite independent recording artists in a different light, but this will also give me full justification to doodle at IFC.com content meetings (!).
Come back everyday and check back often. You never know when you’ll see Thom Yorke in a speedo or Animal Collective on the medal stand.
