learn more about Volume One's cover art from Lorrinda Benavides

“Dancin’ and Romancin’” by Lorrinda Benavides
Prismacolor colored pencils on Bristol smooth tooth paper, 11x14”, (2018)

Lorrinda Benavides has lived and worked in the Eau Claire area since 1985. She has a passion for drawing and creating artwork.

“What inspired this drawing is an old flame. Although we weren’t as odd as this couple dancing, we certainly came from different worlds. He played in a band and the only song he did not play was ‘Color My World’ by Chicago. It was the only song we danced together during his gigs. The nostalgia is so strong, that whenever I see my original creation hanging on the wall, I hear the song in my head, feel the love and passion in my heart and a slow two step in my feet. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it!”  – The Artist
