This is a cover I just did for the Warner Bros./Reprise "GUIDE" an in-house publication art directed by Mike Diehl. Mike called and said I could do whatever I wanted, it just had to relate to music in some way. No sketches required. He said I could do the type if I wanted to, so all the typography is hand drawn. Many other illustrators from Drawger and Picture Mechanics (Enos, Taxali, Mably, Vasconselos, McCauley) have done these in the past. Go to this link
and click on the items on the left to view them. It's a great collection of contemporary illustration/design.
