TBT: Working with Liu Bolin on Bon Jovi's "What About Now" album cover project

A "Throwback Thursday" first!  This time lapse video shows me and my New York Academy of Art pals working with artist Liu Bolin to execute his vision for Bon Jovi's What About Now album cover.  Thanks to my awesome artist buddy Elizabeth Misitano of Klein Sun Gallery, Emily Slapin Lufkin, Nicolas V. Sanchez, Dave Wagner, Mitchell Martinez, Tina Ryan-Kleid, Mei Ge, Sarah Crumlich and I had a blast camouflaging the Bon Jovi band members into the background design using a little acrylic paint and a lot of color-matching skills.  Tina and I teamed up to make drummer Tico Torres "disappear" into the background...  See if you can spot him in the finished album cover below!
