Tunes for a Monday Morning

I'm in the mood for Of Monsters and Men this morning, so here's hoping that you are too.

First, "King and Lionheart,"  performed in a studio session filmed for Billboard magazine. This one goes out to Ellen Kushner (my writing partner) this morning, as I think she'll like the lyrics (and the brass! All very Bordertown, yes?)

In the second video, the band plays "Dirty Paws" at a music festival in their native Iceland. This one's for all my fellow animal lovers out there.

The illustration below is by the fabulous Julianna Swaney, in Portland, Oregon. Please visit her website, blog, and shop for more.
