For my cover design I wanted to represent the album as a whole because it's impossible to pick just one song as my favorite. My concept was to style each letter after a specific song as follows. M="Maps" For this I drew an old vintage map of Los Angeles, where Maroon 5 started as a band. A="Animals" Instead of drawing an animal, I went with a more subtle approach and drew jungle leaves to represent this song. R="Sugar" I made this letter look as if it was made out of candy. O="My Heart Is Open/New Love" This O has a cute heart pattern to represent the love songs on this album. O="In Your Pocket" I wanted this second O to relate to denim material, like pockets for jeans. N="Leaving California" I drew a California sunset with palm trees to represent this song. Everything is hand-illustrated in watercolor and colored pencil, and for the finishing touch I added in the "V" album name in the background. I had a lot of fun creating this and I hope you enjoy it too! Thanks!
