FAVORITE COVER OF ALL TIME
My favorite cover at the moment is this beauty by Stephen Russ, Sometime Never by Roald Dahl from 1949. I find the whole thing to be terribly pleasing. From composition to color to the strange combination of media and textures. It feels awfully well balanced and contemporary. I wish I could make something like this. So effortless and free and fun.
