We were asked to create the cover for Swag 2 based on a concert poster we had done for Social Distortion. Aside from the design for the cover, the image needed to wrap around to include the back cover, inside flaps, and title page. HCG is also a featured artist in the book with a two page spread showcasing five of our posters.
