I recently came across this astounding work of art from my past. Several years ago when AHQ was working on Purpose, I had a sleepless night. I wonder if this was when I was gravely ill or having a flare-up or something, because that’s the only time I can’t sleep. I can normally sleep with no problems whatsoever.

Anyway, I got up in the middle of the night and drew up a concept for the CD cover.

Here’s some excerpts of what I sent to the guys:

I couldn’t sleep last night. So I got up at 3:30 and drew up an album cover concept!

Of course, I have a level of artistic talent roughly equivalent to that of a handicapped pig, but nonetheless I think the concept has a quaint charm.

The left side is the front cover, the right is the back. On the front we have four mics and stands. Obviously the four squares consumed by misshapen orbs represent deformed head shots of the quartet.

Pretty interesting, huh. We did end up going with the overall idea of individual headshots, but I don’t remember if I can take complete credit (or blame) for that or not.
