The Music One for sale!

Here are a few more layout pictures from the zine as a taster and the blurb from the shop page. It goes on sale tomorrow...

'The concept of this zine is simple - take a handful of music-obsessed illustrators and designers and ask them to do a portrait of their favourite musician or band. Then get each contributor to write a few words about their favourite record by their chosen muse.

This was something of a dream project for me to compile as a self-confessed record nerd and illustrator so it was an absolute pleasure selecting the best up-and-coming and established illustrators and designers to contribute.
