Lubriphonic “Gig is On” Album Art


Illustration, Graphic Design




Complete packaging / album art for Lubriphonic's "The Gig is On" 2010 studio album released on CD. 5-panel digipak.

Art direction by Rick King.

The main art is an illustration centered around the old Checkerboard Lounge (1972 - 2003) at 423 East 43rd Street in Bronzeville -- the Chicago institution was formative for members of the band.

Buddy guy opened the club and in the 30 years it existed the Checkerboard played host to a slew of great artists such as B.B. King, Magic Slim, Howlin' Wolf, Junior Wells, Chuck Berry, Eric Clapton, Rolling Stones, and Robert Plant.
