Journey - Horizon by ChristopherPayne Journey - Horizon by ChristopherPayne
I'll give you three guesses as to which band I had in mind for this CD cover idea....hehe.

I always thought, with their sequence of single word album titles...that "Horizon" would be a good one...and with this winged scarab breaching the horizon....I thought to myself..."self...that's a good title for this painting!"...lol.

Thanks for taking a look! God bless!

And by the way: I could have guessed on the first try with the winged scarab. Anytime I see a winged scarab, even if it's just Egyptian, I think of Journey. Correction, any time I hear "scarab". Hey, the fist word of the second sentence is "Anytime". That's a Journey song. :)

You do good at drawing covers for Journey albums that don't even exist, or don't exist yet. Good job.

Thank you very much everyone for your terrific comments :)

It's a great joy to be able to do something I love and have a band like Journey and their fans take notice and enjoy my work. I am absolutely blessed to have been able to do several pieces of art for them. With hope, I'd love to do more work for them in the future. Sadly these days, labels like to use design companies, and I refuse to work for them and become a cog in the works...just creating pieces for the companies, and earning a wage. I think artists should create pieces as individuals and they should be the ones making the money off their talent and creativity. So if that means I never sell a piece to another band like Journey again...so be it. I think it's worth the stand...and I have fantastic memories form the pieces I got to do for them, and I can honestly say they are a great bunch of guys.

I have fallen in love with your Journey art. All of your album Ideas are, beautiful and elegant. If I was Journey, I would use all of your ideas. Great job.
