UPDATED: You can read a follow-up to this post that explains the album cover and it’s meaning here.
After I finished the painting for “Panic” the first single off of Sublime with Rome‘s new album “Yours Truly”, I began working on the cover for the album. I spent a couple days with the band at Eric Wilson’s in Long Beach while they were taking promo photos and practicing for their upcoming tour to go over concepts. Over the course of the next 3 weeks we went back and forth on a handful of designs and when they saw this one they knew we were on to something. I can’t wait until the album comes out, I am extremely thankful that I was able to be there for the recording process at Sonic Ranch and that I was able to put together the packaging for one of my favorite bands of all time.
I’ll be on tour with Sublime with Rome and 311 filming and tattooing this summer from July 8-September. Go buy your tickets today!
