I work with Illustrator

Album Cover Illustration – In 3-D

One of 18 new illustrated album covers I put together for an art show at Mahtay Café. In 3-D by “Weird Al” Yankovic. Recently featured on Stranger Things, this is Al’s 2nd studio album, and home to one of his most famous songs – Eat It. It also features a reggae style parody about buying a condo that is so silly it makes me laugh every time I hear it. This is the album that made Al a star, and he’s still touring to this day!

Album Cover Illustration – Fly By Night v2

One of 18 new illustrated album covers I put together for an art show at Mahtay Café. Fly By Night by Rush. This is the second time I’ve done this cover – I used the original linework and flat colours as a basis, and then added new shading. In terms of albums, I’m considering this a remaster.

This is Rush’s second album, first to feature Port Dalhousie’s own Neil Peart, and first to dabble in progressive rock (after their relatively straight forward rock debut). The title track is my favourite on the album, but By-Tor and the Snow Dog is a close second – a four-movement epic with four sub-movements (?) within the third.

Album Cover Illustration – Feels So Good

One of 18 new illustrated album covers I put together for an art show at Mahtay Café. Feels So Good by Chuck Mangione. I first heard about Chuck through King of the Hill (he made many appearances on the show), and started listening to his music almost as a joke. Little did I know I would love it so much. I think it’s near impossible to be in a bad mood when Feels So Good is playing.
