The Nerve Cover Art and Posters

I was commissioned to help bring The Nerve’s album cover to life based on their initial ideas. We wanted a fun, colorful visual that included the car with a woman tipping her martini glass out the window while flying down a desert road. The rotoscope illustration style was also discussed in lieu of a more photo-realistic approach.

We shot the car with the model in a studio setting, after which I used it for the illustrative composite. This included design of the logo and the sign with the marquee. We added a few tongue-in-cheek references for the fan base and locals.

The final cover has been well received and was also the basis for a poster. The Nerve continue to work with me on various projects.

Now, lets get back to work…
