Ben Harper Give Til It’s Gone
Give Til It’s Gone is the third release Varnish has designed for the talented lap steel wizard, Ben Harper. Varnish once had a meeting with Ben over milkshakes, burgers and fries – he’s just down to earth cool like that and we love making art for him. For this release, the vision of an outstretched palm pouring out over a city came quickly to us and worked well to capture the spirit of the album. Boldly colored illustrations and type set the tone for the rest of the record. In fact, this look was so favored, that it has since been adopted for Ben’s website.
