Album cover illustration & logo design for The Hit Points, an outstanding bluegrass video game music band out of Nashville, TN. The brief was to create a "final boss fight" illustration, inspired by the scale & style of classic JRPGs like Final Fantasy 6 and Chrono Trigger. Pixel art, 300px square, 28 colours.
An absolutely massive commission to caricature an entire chorus from Sydney, Australia. The enormous finished piece was printed on canvas and sold to raise money at a benefit auction.

To date, the single largest & most involved piece of art I've ever done.
