For this cover, I experimented with drip-style painting. The title has one of the paintings, creating text as image. While another painting is the yellow expressiveness depicting the fast-paced spontaneity that is bebop jazz music. The color yellow symbolizes energy, intellect, as well as holiness.
Main inspiration: The Beat Generation and Bebop Jazz music
