Here's the cover art for the upcoming demo EP by kool Mexican surf combo Frankisia. Aside from a blast of Lucha Libre rock'n'roll action, this drawing features the debut of my new character creation that will soon be sweepin' the nation, the Smoking Kitten. Keep eyes peeled for a vast wave of tacky merchandise featuring this adorable feline nicotine addict. (Smoking Kitten © King Merinuk 2012, all rights of any kind reserved forever.) Stay tuned for MORE ACTION!

Back in 2005 I did the art and layout for the Eternal Bond CD by my old pals The Independents. This year the album is making its debut on vinyl so I was called upon to revise and update the original sleeve design and here be the result. My first idea was to do a major reworking of the original front cover design which you can see below. We finally decided to use something much closer to the CD version for the LP sleeve but the revised devil head art will be used on stickers and T-shirts. Stay tuned for MORE SATANIC ACTION!

Here's a bit of advertising art I just put together for my old pal Nick Rawkahula's suave line of hot rod/rock'n'roll action wear. The ad will be printed with Rawkahula shirt designs and info superimposed over the drawing but here you get the art in its raw form. I'm workin' on 5 new record sleeve designs right now so lotsa new stuff will be posted here soon. Stay tuned for MORE ACTION!
