This was a commissioned piece from a diehard Sublime fan. The album features a picture of a back tattoo of the Sublime logo with a border of tropical flowers in black and white. I embroidered the background as well as the person in the photo in abstract wool embroidery. The lettering was stitched in black satin stitches. The border was created by first stitching and then laser cutting black fabric along the edge of the album cover. The tropical flowers were then stitched in white thread on top of it.
