Recently I was asked by Andy Lang from the band Bits of Shit to create some cover artwork for their album Cut Sleeves.
It was an honour to make a portrait of Andy’s dog, Joan “Jett” Lang, for this purpose.
The artwork was inspired by Joan, and her rockin’ namesake Joan Jett.
Further inspiration came from the album title Cut Sleeves, which is a reference to the denim stylings of the funkalicious Afrika Bambaataa.
Add a pinch of Tahiti Felix tattoo flavour and it’s all good.
And here is the finished product by yours truly.
To finish, enjoy this clip for the ditty Dirty Bomb by Bits of Shit featuring the lovely Joan “Jett” Lang.
That is one COOL cd cover!
Thanks for the compliment, Mikhael – the especially cool thing is it’s actually to be an old school 12″ record cover. Yay for vinyl!
