Bennie Blasts onto the Music Scene

This illustration is a personal work that was created for a Secret 7 charity event. More specifically, for for a vinyl record sleeve — to mark the 40th anniversary of Elton John’s track Bennie And The Jets.

700 one-of-a-kind vinyl records will be available for purchase, with the proceeds going to the charity Art Against Knives. The rules were to create artwork with no text to be placed on a single side of the sleeve. The full artwork and a few details can be found below.
