These Hopeful Machines Cover by jasinski These Hopeful Machines Cover by jasinski
Original artwork for the BT album "These Hopeful Machines".

This was painted on two canvases 15 x 45 inches each. Painted with oils.

It took me over a month to finish. I consider it one of the best things I have ever made.

I can't offer it for as a print, but thought I'd share what the full artwork looks like. Get the album! It'll rock your world.

Not only is this some of your best work ever jasinski, it is also some of Brian's best music ever. When this first came out and I saw the cover I knew it was yours. Glad to see you're still doin' your thing man.

I totally heart your work, especially the music (esp your melody your song) and the zodiac series :)

Cheers!

I cant believe the artist for the covers has a dA

I loved the covers the minute I saw them
Seeing the whole thing just makes it that much more awesome

Also I dont recall seeing the portion towards the bottom on a cover or anything

I want to see it bigger. Much bigger. Too much detail to take in on such a small scale. You should definitely make it a print piece. :please:

This is fantastic. It's weird because while I know the quality that comes from your art so often, I am so not used to seeing amazing album artwork like this. Thanks for pushing the envelope, and BT is awesome for seeing your talent. I hope other musicians pick up on this too.

Wow... just wow. So much gorgeous imagery. It's a shame you can't make a print from it. Maybe cropping them down into several parts might work? (but it flows so nicely though). i mean, BT cropped it fairly nicely for his singles and album.
