Chuck Ragan and The Camaraderie have unveiled the first winner of their Till Midnight inspired fan art competition. The track “Vagabond” serves as the inspiration behind the picture as presented by Atlanta, GA artist Caleb Morris. Camaraderie bassist Joe Ginsberg comments:
“Caleb’s unique and clean illustration work immediately jumped out to us… he has a way of creating strong characters whose personality transcend the page. For this reason, I was really excited when he chose ‘Vagabond’ as his inspiration, and even more thrilled at the end result. Caleb has truly captured the character that all of us in the Camaraderie often play…a Vagabond!”
Morris explains his inspiration:
“I’d been trying to weasel my way into the Chuck Ragan camp for a while and when this came up, I thought it was the perfect project for me… I picked ‘Vagabond’ to illustrate because I’d spent a couple years traveling in a band and now traveling with illustration so I had some idea of what it’s like going from town to town and never staying in one place too long. Joe Ginsberg and the rest of the team were some of the most fun and excited people I’ve had a chance to work with and I tried to capture that spirit in the work.”
Future original pieces along with their artist profile will be featured on Chuck Ragan’s official website and social networks, with exclusive pieces and limited edition merchandise inspired by the art to be featured and sold on Ragan’s website. Selected artists will receive a flat fee of $200 for their composition.
