Soey Milk & John Mayer’s Creative Collaboration
“He’s a creative individual with the biggest heart,” says Soey Milk of accomplished singer-songwriter and talented guitarist John Mayer. “He supports artists 120%.” After a conversation initiated by Mayer over Instagram, Milk was granted complete creative freedom in designing the cover art for his new album, “The Search for Everything.” Mayer gradually released the album beginning with four song collections that were dropped in January and February, which he called Wave 1 and Wave 2. The remaining songs were released on April 14th and the album is now available in its entirety (14 total tracks) on iTunes and Spotify.
Milk, whose subjects are typically female, produced an enchanting drawing of Mayer for Wave 1 with wistful flowers and intricate mandalas blooming in the space behind him. A single, decorated string with small tassels is draped over the singer’s head and around his shoulder, possibly representing a chord or thought weaving through his mind. His face is meticulously rendered as a strikingly realistic image, while the designs surrounding him are drawn as delicate silhouettes. Blooming flowers and draped strings are common symbols in Milk’s graphite drawings and oil paintings, which simultaneously represent the delicacy and ferocity of the feminine. Read more
