I became interested in Lo-Fi Hip-Hop when I began drawing more routinely to help me get in a particular "mood" to relax and just take things as they come. The original fulfillment for this was the youtube channel that lots of folks are probably familiar with, found here.
I've developed somewhat of an adoration for this mood and I find myself constantly trying to achieve, (as silly as it sounds), a sort of "zen" that is associated with it. My fondest recollection of this is sitting near a window, snow falling outside, no obligations for the day -- hot coffee nearby, wrapped in blanket with either a book or my iPad. Now that may sound very specific but it is easier to achieve that you might think.
This playlist is being updated with new songs almost constantly, but it is the same at its core.
This playlist is one I have been building and mending for several years. It was inspired by a like playlist called "Young Witch In Training" that I came across on 8tracks internet radio. A few tracks from that set became the foundation of my playlist.
The tracks on my playlist, "TENDER SPELLCASTER," have been collected over the years from my favorite artists. These particular songs take me far from where I am and what I'm doing. Songs with such great imagination that I cannot help but imagine myself mixing potions and bundling herbs for drying from the rafters of a tiny kitchen.
If you would like to follow my playlist, it can be found on Apple Music simply by searching the title or by following this link.

Welcome. Everything that you see here, I have spent lots of time and effort in the late hours of the night (usually following, or prior to, a 9 hour work day) to create. Coral Witch Co. was built as a vehicle for my art and the culture that encompasses it.
When I'm not working at home in a bundle of blankets, or at my overcrowded desk, I can be found in a coffee shop -- especially if it is raining, and especially if it is early in the morning.
A BIT ABOUT ME.
My name is Chyanne.
I am a midwesterner, right down to the "owpe, excuse me," when I get in someones way. I live in a tiny neighborhood within a small city with my little family. My boyfriend, Seth, and I have a house with our problem child - a giant White German Shepherd named Dallas.
I've been an artist and a creative since I was a youngster. I've written two books and have done all realms of visual art since I can recall.
WHAT TO EXPECT.
I want to create and sustain a gentle, tender culture. I want CWC to express that it is okay to be kind and honest. There is a great optimism within being genuine. Everything that I create -- all of my products, images, and posts are a reflection of that.
Of course my color scheme is a ripple of that as well, a tender, blush pink - soft, but striking and effective. It carries a message -- it conveys the importance of self-care. It is okay to be vulnerable, because if you can feel vulnerable, you can feel comfortable.
But with a great, looming wall of gentleness, there is cast an intimidating shadow.
There is great effort in defeat. It is okay to feel defeated. But it is important that you don't lose your momentum. There are certain things that fortify a person when they can poke-fun at their struggles without devaluing them. Illustrate your confidence by saying, "NOT TODAY DEMONS."
That is what Coral Witch Co. is all about: enchanting and enriching lives with witchy, kitschy goods.
