Paper Boat Series

Paper Boat Illustrations by Gumball Grenade

"We'll need wood and we will need stones for a brand new house,

To leave, leave, forever leave, the everlasting land.

We'll cross the sea and we will brave storms in a paper boat.

To leave, leave, forever leave the everlasting land." - Lyrics and song by Cocoon



I'm completely loving the song Paper Boat by Cocoon. So relaxing and dreamy, just a perfect for a little Sunday. I spent my afternoon thinking about love, spirituality, and paper boats of all things! And of course sketching! Out came a new series of illustrations called the Paper Boat Series. Here's a little preview and be sure to take a listen to this sweet little song! So charming to hear the French accent and to hear the lead singer coaching the crowd on roaring like a dinosaur! Seems universal to me!

love that song I can really see why it inspires you. I'll have to look for more of his music. I think he should use your work on his cd cover.
