The band "Journey" wrote a song called "Butterfly" on their newest album, and I created this with the hope that it would be released as a single. I wanted to capture the style of some of their early album covers, while still incorporating the scarab (yeah, I know it's not a scarab, it's a butterfly) style that they're most known for. Turns out, it was not released as a single, so the artwork was never used for anything. I still like it, here it is.

Prints are ENABLED for this piece.

Thanks for looking and any comments you might leave.

Well, I think it fits. Not all of the Journey covers have a scarab on it, but it does follow the style, and thats all that matters.

That's pretty sweet, good job. I'm not a fan of modern Journey though.

Stunning! And it perfectly fits the style of Journey's cover art. I adore the rich colors and smooth flow of this.

Thanks! I definitely was trying to capture the essence of some of their earlier covers. I wish they had used this one. The one they bought from me for their CD cover, I'm less than happy with.

Absolutely lovely. I've been a Journey fan for many years now and this is definitely keeping up with their previous album designs. Favorite!
