Paul Romano is a designer fine artist who has been known to do a lot of cool album art for bands like Mastodon, Earth, and Rosetta. I first found out about Romano when looking at the album art of Mastodon’s Leviathan (above). The details of the album art blew me away with how cohesive it came together along with the loose ties to Moby-Dick being a bonus. Check out his site workhardened he displays both his commercial art along with personal works. The art overall has a dark feel to it but I think that’s what makes it so real. A lot of the bands he works with have an aggressive undertone, which furthers the connection of the art to the music.
