Mayonnaise Jenkins and the Former Kings of the Delta Blues
I had a fun opportunity to paint a CD cover for my friend, author, editor, teacher, muse, maniac and musician Garrett Cook and his music partner Wick Hill. It was a fairly liberating experience in that the subject of the matter was rather open.
Mayonnaise Jenkins and the Former Kings of the Delta Blues is a vastly varied collection of songs, from spoken word, to blues, pop, shoe-gaze and A cappella. So finding the right thing to capture what was representative creatively was a fun challenge.
So I presented a number of ideas and this was the one they went with.
