Last month was very exciting as I finished one of several original album cover illustrations. This one was for rapper/singer SeanGon. He wanted me to create the illustration using traditional techniques that reflected my oil painted/pulp/surrealist style. The subject of the art was a portrait of himself in a psychedelic, colorful outer space environment, to reflect his mellow Indy electronic music style. The front illustration was executed in oil on canvas with a little bit of digital editing.
His inspiration for this idea came from Kid Cudi’s “Day and Night” album cover. The finished product will be used for his web and social media content and for printed album covers. I was also asked to design the back cover for the track list, which was painted digitally using brushes that matched an oil painted appearance.
