I was lucky enough to get a chance to design an album cover for my buddy Mike's kickass band "The Business End" recently and as I've always wanted to take a crack at one it was nothing but a blast.  I was given a nutty description of what the band wanted (including "A Grim Reaper made of ice cream and sweets  being chased by a group of angry people wearing “Jesus Goggles" along with cameos by his dog Betty and Killface from Frisky Dingo) which initially had me stumped.  I roughed out a dirty sketch first to see if I could even make it work and, convinced I could come up with something at least fun, banged out the finished cover.  Even managed to work in a cameo of Eddie (the second most interesting man in the world) and his trusty bottle of Jack Daniels.  Hopefully did an ounce of justice to an incredible album.

Haha, nice to finally see this after hearing you describe it.

It broke my brain.

Yeah mine too, was liberating though in a way working on something that wasn't really supposed to "make sense":)
