We Made This have put together a playlist, music to design by. This is my favourite album to listen to when working - especially good very early in the morning when everyone else is sleeping. Devendra Banhart also makes beautiful drawings. Have a look here.
"Mandy Prowse studied painting and printmaking at Maidstone College of Art. She explores natural and human forms and the interconnectedness of all things. Themes in her work relate to birth, mortality and metamorphosis. Her altered books are minimalistic and organic combining a modern aesthetic with an almost Victorian touch. If you told me these books were 100 years old I wouldn’t think twice about it.”
