It’s no secret that I’m a big fan of album cover art. It’s safe to say that it’s probably the single most influential image source I encountered as a child. That’s why I put together this post for my friend and Creative Director Extraordinaire Irene Gallo over at Tor Books for their website. I gave her well over 50 different album covers so Irene decided to break it up into 4 parts. Here is the first installment.
More drawings with friends….and then some. Two techniques for drawing revolving around music. The larger one is a pencil drawing of Elvis Costello from a performance at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD. I was lucky to be close enough to actually make a couple sketches on the scene.
The rest are ball point pen (red, blue and black) on oaktag, the same stuff they use for office folders. I added a little White Out to bump up some shapes. I wanted to see what I could make with materials just about everyone has laying around. I’m also a fan of those old school red conté crayon figure studies. Yup, that’s Casey with his banjo again. And Anthony with the bass.
