At the begining of 2002 , I was contacted by Ben Astrop, frontman of the alternative rock band Alien Breed. He told me he was a big fan of my work and invited me to a gig they were playing in Hollywood. I went with my wife and we had a great time. The band was tight, the music was catchy and the show was very colorful. After discussing some more, Ben asked me if I'd be interested in doing the artwork for their upcoming CD, Antidote. His enthusiam was contagious, so I said "sure why not!"

I created a couple of pieces and delivered them via email. Then, Ben, who has a very strong vision for his band, proceeded to tweak the color to his liking and voila! My first CD cover!
