The first time I heard about Sugar Brown was through a short documentary that my friend, a later collaborator, Justin Lee, made called Sugar Brown - The Shade of Blues. Later, for Episode 19 of our podcast, This.Broken.Mixtape, I was able to finally meet him in person and we then made plans for the artwork on his upcoming album to be released in March 2018.
The artwork for the front and back covers was made using traditional linoleum stamp making techniques. This was something I hadn't done probably since high school but I found it to be such a gratifying experience and I hope to do more of this in the future.
You can listen to the album here on spotify
