Good Music is Hard to Find

I've had this one backlogged for a while: not because it's particularly special but because I've taken a while to find colors and textures and the right composition. And because work and life are always so unpredictable. Maybe someday I'll have a job that actually entails some sort of consistent art process. I'm throwing around ideas for a book right now (and some other projects as well); ideas, though that's all they may be, are a good starting point. Thanks for bearing with.
In case it needs explaining, the hidden image in this one is the Treble Clef. The use of and old vinyl LP player and the various types of 'obsolete' recording platforms is a metaphor for the fact that much of the truly inspired and interesting music lies in the past OR is left to those that continue to use the 'old methods' to preserve the quality of their craft. This may be a personal observation, but you gotta take what you can get from me these days. As always, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you like this one.

  1. Nice one! Any of the art on the record sleeves inspired from actual album covers?

    I think I recognize the underneath texture from somewhere, never would have thought to use it that way, great idea! It is always cool to see how others use the same tools you have in your arsenal. I hope you get more time to work on mroe art projects soon.
