The Decemberists return to LA (specifically, The Wiltern) the evening of Monday, November 24th! And tickets are still available, so if whimsical and epic storytelling paired with a plethora of instruments is your thing, definitely check them out.

I've admired their album art for a long time, and one day I finally took some time to research the artist. Turns out, it's songwriter and frontman Colin Meloy's girlfriend, Carson Ellis! She has lots of brilliant work dealing with pen and ink, watercolor, and pencil. I'm in love with her use of thin, well-placed lines. Here's her album cover for The Decemberists' most recent CD, The Crane Wife.
