In October 2013 i was commisioned to make the cover artwork for Kings of Leon ,Beautiful War. This artwork was designed and sketched over 5 days , alot of fine detail was added to the drawings. The inspiration came from a tradecard of flowers and lettering sent to me from there design team in New York. We decided to film the process of the sketch through timelapse photography over the 5 days of sketching. To view the film click the tab to the right of my website. Thank you and enjoy the short film.
