IN THE 1980s I loved to draw cassette covers by hand. I spent hours making these pieces of art just perfect. This cassette cover was created for an Empire Strikes Back NPR radio drama recorded from a local radio station.
Here's a challenge: take a moment and create some hand-drawn artwork. Maybe it's a letter or card to a friend, or a CD or DVD cover. Anything! Take one night to plan your drawing, color it and then share it!
