Imagine Dragons

Hand illustrated cover artwork for the Imagine Dragons single “Birds” ft. Elisa.

The band wanted to incorporate a bird motif with a subtle nod to Elisa’s Italian ancestry. I took my own spin on the illustration, combining my grafitti sensibilities (spray paint) with an eagle silhouette after my hometown San Francisco’s legendary Italian alcohol brand Fernet’s mascot.

Cover artwork for “STAND UP” with Dan Deynolds as the featured artist.

Tom Morello of Rage Against the Machine wrote this song in response to George Floyd’s murder. I wanted to use bold, minimal typography for the cover, channeling the song’s succint call to action . Drawing influence from my own background in grafitti/street art, I distressed the classic Impact font used in many grafitti crew stickers to echo where the movements and protests were happening: the street.
