Seattle Weekly cover

One of my favorite clients to work with, Seattle Weekly, asked me to create the cover for this weeks issue. The feature article is actually a series of articles...each author talks about their favorite CD and how that artist (and that CD in particular) changed their lives.

The art director wanted the cover to look like a high school student's (or young adult's) notebook...decorated with random sketches and words...and ink stains. I never really approached a finished illustration like this and it was very enjoyable! I'm sure this will affect my future work.

Anyways, enjoy!

This is my favorite thing you have done. I LOVE anything to do with books, you know this. I also like the vintage/aged look of it. Nice job, this is completely out of your element and I am sure you were challenged. NNNNIICCCEEE
