It’s been an unexpectedly busy summer (don’t you dare think I’m complaining) and some of the illustration gigs that have fallen into my lap have been super challenging, thus super rewarding. Here’s such a one!
One of my new favourite bands, Unidentified Funk Object, affectionately known as UFO, is releasing a new album with all original music and guys, I can’t get over how tight this funk band is. Their live show is mindblowing. Take the seats out of the bar because no one wants to be sitting down for this show. At all. Ever.
But the best part? I played flute and alto sax in elementary, junior high and high school orchestras with a huge number of UFO's band members way back in the day. It’s beyond satisfying seeing these peeps dominate their art form and share the funkiest of sounds with us mere mortals.
The fact that Greg came to me to do the album artwork is just beyond flattering. So so so touched to be a part of this guys. You all rock my socks!
Now, can you point out all the P-FUNK album art references hidden throughout this drawing? Give it a shot!
Love and sloppy kisses,
