The other week I was contacted by the lovely Nick Van Tinteren, guitarist for the Bristol Hip Hop/Ska band; Cut Capers, with a request to do an illustration for the cover of their Single Pinstripe Tux!
He had seen one of my Illustrations for Dark Harvest (which you can see in this post) and wanted a similar feel for the cover of their Single.
I happily obliged and below is a developed rough pencil sketch of the final composition.
I also went ahead and quickly mocked up some text for the cover. The font, position and style will be discussed and refined for the final illustration.
