This illustration was commissioned by Danger Bird Records (Los Angeles, CA) and Colortest Merchandising (Athens, GA) for T. Hardy Morris' Live at the Georgia Theatre album cover. You may also know of T. Hardy Morris as the lead vocalist and main song writer of Dead Confederate (as seen on Late Night with Conan O' Brien) and as a member of the band Diamond Rugs (along with members of Deer Tick and Black Lips).
This hand drawn illustration is among my favorite client work because I think the dark tone, texture, color palette, and lighting all convey the appropriate mood for the live performance and T. Hardy Morris' style and work as a whole.
In addition to illustrating the cover for this album, I also illustrated a limited edition screen printed poster entitled "Places in Peril." The poster was included with the album and a t-shirt for those who bought the deluxe package whilst supplies lasted. To view the poster and learn more, click here.
