Promo art for a band.. ...new territory for me.
So the university campus newspaper has an editor who knows the band's lead singer and since they're friends, the band (whom I've heard is a good band anyway) wants some promotion in the form of a cd review published in the paper on a page with some promotional art provided by the school newspaper illustrator. Since I applied for the job by going to the newsroom and saying "can I draw for you guys", I'm not exactly a pro at this. I'm learning as I go.
So what do you think of this as promotional art for a band. They're kind of a funk band with hip-hop and jazz and rock ("fusion"?). They list Jimmy Hendrix (*bows*) as one of their influences (according to my editor) so that's the reason for the burning guitar. One of the members plays sax and sports a 'fro, hence the profile on the left. What do you think?
