After coming up with some design concepts and doing some sketches and mock-ups, I started work on the final design.

Designing wigs (part 2)
After being inspired by a “lowbrow art” sticker we found (which came from a cereal box long, long ago), we wanted to have the album art for “Wigs & Liquor” reflect that vibe. I wanted to have a devil girl on the cover, and I thought it would be cool[…]
