Commissioned artwork for an album cover! The band requested a clock tower with a somber sort of blue/yellow color scheme. This was quite relaxing to paint!

Inspired by many different clock towers, probably mainly the famous Big Ben in London.
Here's the album cover with typography:… which I also designed.

The whole image flows so well together, the tower and the sky. 
Nice ;3

That's awesome! But just so you know, Big Ben is actually the name of the bell, not the tower.

Good heavens this is beautiful.. About to purchase a tote bag of this on Society6. You really did a wonderful job on this (and all of your art) and somehow this picture and these colors give me a sense of longing and nostalgia. Which is strange, but wonderful. Either way, this is wonderful and basically my screensaver for everything. <3

very nice clock tower piece. The yellows and blues create a mellow feeling so I can see why you said it was relaxing to make. :)
