Mature Themes

I definitely don't consider myself an illustrator but this is an image I created to represent Ariel Pink's album Mature Things for UO's best albums of 2012 list. The image of the minstrel is an etching of a painting called The Jester by Frans Hals. Minstrels and Jesters are a common theme in paintings from that era and I could have easily chosen Carravagio's lute player but something about Hals' smirking Jester made more sense for Ariel if not the entire album. And had I been designing the actual record cover, I might have narrowed the composition down to just that image or a recreation of that image.
