Record Shop, a Logo, Sketchiness and My Fav Disney Princess

http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3300/3447591860_4d0521f51a.jpg This is an illustration for the Night & Day section in The Pitch. The section has a blurb about Record Shop Day or something. I had fun doing the album covers, I figure most of them are recognizable. http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_QYzfXnwhxQU...

Just some more work. http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3025/2946727681_fb4351bcef_o.jpg 3rd Nighttime cover. This is as far as the series is going for now. I can't wait to see these in the bookstore. This is my favorite of the 3. Anyone think one of the others is better? http://farm4.static.flickr.com/...

I use photoshop and I get the halftone dots this way: 1. I crate a gradient in the shape I want on a separate layer. 2. I copy and paste that layer in a new file. 3.
