The Underlings - Vice Squad 7"

I just knocked this out for the Underlings. Out soon on Meth Bog Records.

Don't want to jinx this, so i'll just say that i'm excited about a new illustration client. Yes indeed.

Great looking album art. The second image with the isolated heads and stuff made me think of those old magazines for kids with the two page spreads of backgrounds on which you'd place the cut outs of characters. They weren't stickers but could be attached and removed over and over on the surface. You know what I'm talking about? Anyway, it would be fun to see you do something like that. Maybe have an assortment of underground cave or dungeon settings and place those weird troll characters around the picture.


The initial inspiration for the heads was those floating Kirby heads that he does. I love that. The things you're talking about are colorforms, which are the inspiration for the two-color with heavy color bleed outline deal. Type colorforms & some kind of pop culture thing from the 70s or 80s like dungeons & dragons or the hulk & great stuff pops up. I loved those shits.
