Vault: Blues Album

detail of blues album painting

A very old album cover design project (cassette!) for a musical act that I was part of, oh… about a billion years ago. I came up with the ridiculously overblown and tongue-in-cheek title, ‘And God created… SLIDE’

Pat Martin and I used to play lots of music and art festivals around Ireland in addition to playing our own residency gig in Dublin for about 5 years or more. This design is similar to «another illustration I did around this time of bluesman «Robert Johnson.
