  • Inspired by the song “All Alone” which details the story of a “wind-up souvenir,” this illustration presents the members of the band FUN. as wind-up toys. Despite the band’s name and upbeat tunes, their lyrical content is often melancholy, which inspired the juxtaposition of the toys being sad.
  • Electro-rock band MuteMath shown looking backward, a nod to their retro-future style.
  • Freehand and digital composite inspired by Sufjan Stevens’ album The Age of Adz. The record’s themes of faith and heartbreak lent themselves to an image inspired by religious icon paintings.
  • Art rockers the Yeah Yeah Yeahs are known as much for their appearance as their music. The image evokes fashion illustration from the 1980s, a decade frontwoman Karen O often references in her wardrobe.
  • Neko Case and A.C. Newman, the two biggest stars of the indie rock collective the New Pornographers, are treated as opposing heads on a playing card.
  • A poster for New Zealand’s self-described fourth most popular folk parody duo Flight of the Conchords.
  • Freehand illustration of REM’s Michael Stipe, inspired by his frenetic onstage dancing.
  • 3-color screenprint of Joseph Arthur inspired by his album The Graduation Ceremony which details the dissolution of a relationship.
