The Gaslight Anthem’s songs are like a time capsule of a teenage American dream—car radios, boys, late nights, girls; all the things that make you want to grab the one you love and drive all night until you’re somebody new. So along that theme I created the image of a girl sneaking out to meet up with a mysterious male figure in a slick moonlit Camaro. I’ve always liked the concept of frames within a frame, so using the window as the center point I let the scene unfold from there. Minimizing cost I kept it to three colors and I let that determine how I used light and shadow within the illustration. Then Mama’s Sauce came in the ring and body slammed it down for the three count to win it all!
