Another (new to me) artist and a couple of sites for researching such things

I picked up the Budos Band’s “Burnt Offering” at the library, mainly because I liked the cover art and had heard one of their songs on the Cracked Podcast. In some idle time before work I decided to see who the cover artist was. All that’s on the CD case was a monogram of the initial BP, and I didn’t see any matches on here (which is really better for older artists, and I don’t know of any really good resource on illustrators, maybe because the art worlds looks down on illustration) so I checked the Discogs page for the album and found the name — Brian Profilio, who also happens to the band’s drummer. Maybe this is all common knowledge for fans of the band. Anyway his art page has some great stuff, and I thought, this looks like a D&D player’s sketchbook when I got to the pencil sketches, and of course the last page was a miniatures gallery with a lot of Games Workshop stuff but also a few older minis well, mostly in cool dioramas. Small world. Here are couple of the images from his site; go check it out.

 

The Budos Band is sort of a funk band, with some Ethiopian and heavy metal influences. The mix of sounds, and size of the band (there are nine members on Burnt Offerings) reminds me of 1970s soundtracks, but better.
