One half Walt Whitman and one half Dennis Hopper, Wes Lang has relocated from his Brooklyn studio to a house in sunny Los Angeles - where he can fully focus on his biggest inspiration: The West and all the dreams it carries.

Wes has collaborated on merch with his longtime favorite band, Grateful Dead and recently designed the concert tees for Kanye's Yeezus Tour. Try to get his latest book, "American Odyssey," an impressive compilation of old-school skulls, gorgeous babes and uplifting words for the spirit.

We asked him what he likes to hear while drawing and painting in the studio.
