Gym Class Heroes "The Quilt" Album Artwork
Gym Class Heroes "The Quilt" Album Artwork
Just wanted to share the artwork I created for the new Gym Class Heroes Album entitled, "The Quilt".

Travis, the band's front man hit me up via email one day and asked me if I'd be interested in doing a cover for his new album. Of course I took the job, I've always loved album covers so I couldn't wait to get a chance to make my mark!

Well a cover turned into a cover and 3 panels in the CD booklet, All connected like a panoramic scene. Travis wanted a young kid dragging a quilt through a creepy urban carnival with the young boy using the quilt to protect himself from the debauchery of the outside world. That was pretty much all he gave me, so this is what I came up with.

The first sketch is the final and the second is the original concept that I submitted to the band.

The final painting is a BEAST! About 1.5ft x 5ft

here's a link to a larger file so you can see the nice details
