Jonathan Blakeslee LP artwork

unnamed (1)

I’m pleased to have done the artwork for the new Jonathan Blakeslee LP.

Jonathan Blakeslee & The Fronds album “Ferris Wheelin” will be released on Nov 17, 2018. “Ferris Wheelin” is a feel-good, summer rock album that drives along, occasionally stopping for a picnic or to snap a photograph…

The band is offering all kinds of goodies, including t-shirts with the album cover’s design. Please consider supporting or sharing their Indiegogo campaign.

20% of funds raised by Nov 17 go to music non-profits PMAC (Portsmouth Music & Arts Center) and WSCA-106.1 FM (Portsmouth Community Radio).

Bidding will happen during the Monhegan ❤️’s Art celebration on Thursday, August 9 at the Museum. I’m in the company of some fantastic artists, as well, so please check it out if you are able.
