God Dam ... thirsty bitches

Heres the cover without any text:
Anyone familiar with Dre's 2001 album may recognize the title from a little skit in between songs. Fan of Dre's MCing or not, thats a flawless album. Anyway, heres this weeks cover of Houston Press - about a dam outside of the city thats ready to break at any moment - and people dont seem to be doing much to stop it from happening. Monica (the AD) came to me with this idea in mind, and it seemed like an awesome chance to get to do some hand lettering. Of course, I had some ideas I wanted to pitch after reading the story, but was more than happy to see Monica's vision come to life too. below are some of those ideas.

Pete, that sketch with the guy floating in the "O" from "Houston Press" would've been awesome! A very simple and bold design. Great as always!
