I recently had the pleasure of developing the cover art illustration for The Black Moriah's full length Casket Prospects album release.
As a DFW metal band with serious black/thrash chops and a brutal western theme, they're arguably the perfect client. They're talented, professional, and a pleasure to work with. In fact, the process of discussing concept with them and working up dozens of thumbnails lead me to want to expand upon the idea for my graduate illustration thesis through Hartford Art School's low residency MFA Program (see my 'Spooked' post below for a glimpse at the new body of work).
For those with a taste for Slayer and dare to be thrashed, they'll be playing with Nile at Trees in Deep Ellum, TX / March 30th, 2013. Snag a ticket while they're available here.
