I’m using my Pete Townshend doodle for my next promo mailer to send to art directors, so I ended up recoloring it for more drama. This palette is inspired by all those super-cool Philips record shop posters from the ’50s and ’60s. (They had some killer artists!)
I love how prominently his eye is featured now … also, since the card is rectangle, I crop the bottom off, so I moved the music notes and records up to the top … I like it even better that way on the full version here.
Also, I had to do a design for the back … it’s not totally done yet, but here’s an idea of what it looks like … I think the broken neck should be Townshend’s logo or something. :)

(BTW, this isn’t the Part 2 that I spoke of before … consider this Part 1b. I’m still trying to decide how/where to post the second part of the original illustration that I did already.)
