Album cover

Hey ya'll,
Been busy with a few things here and there so long time no update. Hope you all are well. Here's an album cover I've recently designed for my friend Jordan Hanson for his Minneapolis based band Archaica. I wanted to keep a mysterious and whimsical feel to it. Check Jordan's band out at www.archaicamusic.com. Good stuff.





Laterzz,
Mike
