” My project with Rolling Stone magazine was for Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and his new group ‘The Arcs.’ The idea was to make this trippy, as his new group possesses that psychedelic vibe. Hence the wavy pattern, rose pattern, color palette, and overall wonky vibe. I chose to incorporate spacial elements; a galactic black hole of sorts. I feel that many folks can easily joke about that “existential stigmatic thinking” which can at times be associated with the psychedelic era. Aside from the pattern here, It doesn’t instantly scream psychedelic, and that’s something that creates a certain level of elongated interest for me.”
