ABOUT THE ART
"I've been a fan of Tom Petty since I first heard "Refugee" and "Don't Do Me Like That" on the radio as a nine-year-old kid. I was lucky enough to work with Tom on several projects before he passed and I was honored when Adria Petty reached out to me to illustrate a portrait of her dad for the cover of the "Tom Petty: An American Treasure" box set.
I created my illustration based on the iconic photograph shot by Mark Seliger. There are two different posters, one based on the album art that's more graphic and one based on a painting I made using the same illustration. I'm pleased with the result and honored to contribute to the legacy of a musician who has contributed so much fantastic music to my life and this world!"
