The Okee Dokee Brothers

MAY 21, 2010
If there is a kindie music illustration niche, I believe I've found it. This is the third kid's music album I've illustrated/designed so far.
Joe and Justin aka- The Okee Dokee brothers, liked what I did with The Jellydots and Lunch Money. So, they asked if I would like to illustrate their next album. I said,  "Heck yeah!" But they said, "Not so fast partner! We don't want no citified illustration, we want it dirty. I said, "I'll do you one better... I'll throw some mud on it and leave it in the hot North Carolina sun for a fortnight!"
Hopefully, my image relays the high-energy, clever, fun music found on the CD. It may be labeled 'kid's music', but I've been listening to it on my own, no kid in sight. Lately, I find myself humming the tunes to myself. I love me some good bluegrass and this album is no exception.
Below are some of my initial sketches/ideas-
a little take on Remus and Romulus.



the sketch that almost was.

Handcar is the winner.
