Here is the first look at the cover artwork (drawn by Yours Truly) for my hard rock band Overnight Sensation‘s upcoming debut album, Life’s a Bitch.  I decided to draw the hound of Hades, Cerberus, and a hot bitch riding on him, to expound the message and irony of the album title.  As you might know from Greek mythology, Cerberus was the guard dog at the river Styx, who guarded the entryway to the underworld, or Hades.  The hot chick riding the dog espouses the idea that in our western culture, sex sells everything, and from the obvious disdainful expression on her face, you can ascertain that the girl doesn’t give a damn about those, who she chides with her whip.

I also dropped by the SONY Music headquarters in Helsinki yesterday and was given a platinum award for the cover art I designed and drew up (painted by Toxic Angel) for HevisaurusRäyh! album last year.  In Finland, the platinum level is 20 000 sold units.  I am currently designing and drawing up the next Hevisaurus album cover, and the record should be released this autumn through SONY Music.
