so far in my #cliqueart journey i’ve drawn lyrical-focused versions of trench and blurryface. going backwards in album releases we come to 2013 and the band’s Fueled by Ramen label debut – Vessel.
perhaps one of their most genre-bending and powerfully-messaged albums, Vessel is a fan favorite for good reason.
the aesthetic and theme colors for Vessel are grey, blue and white … surprisingly calm compared to the brutally honest emotion, introspective content, and desperate screaming of the music.
i tried to capture that contrast in my drawing … and although the design is fairly simple, i hope it did some justice.
and there’s no forgetting Grandpa Robert and Grandpa Earl … an iconic album cover for an iconic duo. once a friend’s mother asked her, “Are you seriously gonna put a picture of two old men on your wall?” those who know how beautiful and powerful vessel is will hang it with pride. as for me, I have two on my wall now 😉
