best of 2017 / pt. 1

Here is the final installment of my best of 2017. It's a week late, but I've had lots of commissions and classes started up again, leaving me with sparse free time. This is yet another portion of the collection of phenomenal albums that I've fallen in love with last year and will continue to enjoy for a long time. I failed to mention this earlier, but despite this being a countdown and appearing in some kind of order, it does not indicate that one album was better than the other. I really can't rank my favorite albums, no matter how hard I try (and I've tried many times when asked). However, I can tell you that part one includes those that I listened to non-stop––driving, sitting at my desk, trying to stay awake and finishing work at two in the morning, walking through buildings, drawing, laying on the floor, dancing, potting new plants, packaging orders. So these are extra special. Oh and in case you need a refresher, it goes song, album, artist. Here we go:

I also promised that I'd release a project I was working on, but it's not quite complete. In addition to that, I made a site for fifteen of these albums along with posters for each one and coded it myself. I've only got the desktop version done and I'm probably not going to end up working on a responsive design for that one, since I don't have that much time on my hands. Either way, you'll be able to take a look at that soon, so keep an eye out. Hope you enjoyed this list and poster and thanks for stopping by. xx
