Paul Mark, an amazing musician and founder of Radiation Records
, gave me a call a few months ago and asked if I'd be willing to illustrate his new acoustical guitar album. Since Paul is based in NYC, we met up to talk about the music and to go over some of the initial sketches. Most of the initial sketches were based in a desert to riff off of the title. In the end we decided that the final image would take place in some sort of dreamy/playful NYC water landscape and to include a guitar in some way. I was planning on doing some hand-drawn type for the cover, however, Paul was really set on a cover without type and title. It was so refreshing to actually meet the client and have a back and forth discussion about the concepts.
