Rehab – 1980 [Single Art]

October 6th, 2009 by Larry


Our friends, Rehab, are releasing the single, 1980, off of their acclaimed album, Graffiti the World. They asked EC to create artwork to go along with their radio-promo CD’s as well as art to accompany song downloads and other fun stuff.

The lyrics to the song remind me of a bro going to his high school reunion and hollering at shortys from way back. It just so happens that my 10-year reunion is coming up soon, so it made sense to draw Rehab’d “class ring”. I intended for the colors in the ring and background to dynamically change out to the school colors of the different regions they’d promote the song in. For example, Red/Black/White for Georgia/Athens area, and Orange/Blue/Green for Florida, and so forth. Somehow the management really liked the Varsity Gold and Maroon colorway I presented. I like it too, except it sort of reminds me of the worst NFL team ever ever ever (Redskins).
