a warmup doodle spun out of control! i was heavily inspired by the 70's vinyl covers my dad always had lying around as well as 70's fashion in general. trying to post more rough/sketchy art here and not just on my sketchblog, i need to update here more often!

drawn in photoshop cs5 with a cintiq 24HD. for more info on my artwork please visit…

Wonderful composition and colors! It's always fun when a doodle takes on a life of it's own~

Man ... would love to commission you for illustrations in my books but it sounds like you are solidly booked out past my production timeline. Maybe in a later edition ;)   Great stuff, love visiting this page.

Oh gosh, I just adore the colours. And yes, it definitely has a 70's feel to it, it's gorgeous.

Oh man. Love the hairstyles of the 70's It was almost a flawless decade for hair really. Even the nerds were ridiculously hot. Great spin in the decade.

This is as 70's as it gets!  Color, styles, and forms.

I'm trying to make something with a similar feel but I'm way out of my element. Specifically, I like the 3 lines you've got running down the center and the... splash effect behind the black woman. I was wondering if you could give me some search terms. I looked at other "Psychedelic" art on dA and none of it is the same. All the shapes are jagged and rough. What is an LP cover?

thanks for pointing that out, LP is actually the dutch term for vinyl :) i corrected the description!
some search terms you could try are "70s vinyl cover", "70s poster" or "70s design". they all yield some pretty good inspiration for a flowy, groovy 70s type design!
good luck!

This is such a cool style! I love how unified the colors look (but they still contrast enough that it's not just a boring blob).

So freaking sweet and gorgeous looking, you definitely nailed a lovely vibe of 70's rock and culture.  Love the colors and tones, as well as the beautiful shapes and lines.  :)
