Local pop singer, Casey Desmond, took illustration classes at The Art Institute Of Boston where she met her best friend Tofu Squirrel. Over the past year, Tofu Squirrel and Casey Desmond have been combining forces in order to bring Casey's world to life through illustrations. They created a psychedelic space world full of pink trees, flying caterpillars, blue deer, space plants, crystals, synths and more. With the help of Tofu Squirrel, close friends, and family, Casey Desmond was able to create sets, costumes, visuals, and more for her music video "Talking To God". What some of you may not know is that Casey is not only a phenomenal singer, she's also a song writer, art director, designer, illustrator, and she designs and sews all of her own stage costumes. For a low budget music video, the song and visuals are unique and stunning. Casey Desmond is one of a kind. Check it out:
Here are some of Tofu Squirrel's illustrations done for Casey:
