Thomas Pitilli – Nashville Scene

Here’s a cover I recently illustrated for Nashville Scene’s special Bonnaroo issue. This was a lot of fun to work on, I was happy I got to draw some famous faces in music, including Thom Yorke, ?uestlove, Alice Cooper, and Feist.  Below is a look at my process, from sketch to final, including some changes along the way. I originally had St. Vincent on the far left, but was asked to change her to Feist. Oh well. Thanks for reading!

  1. This looks great! I love seeing your ink lines without color too. I sometimes feel like I’m the only illustrator who has never drawn Thom Yorke.

  2. I believe everything published was very logical. However, what about this?
    what if you added a little information? I mean, I don’t
    want to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added something that makes people want more?
    I mean Thomas Pitilli – Nashville Scene | Illo Confidential is a little boring.
    You could look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article titles to grab viewers to open the links.

    You might add a video or a pic or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve written.
    Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little livelier.
