Meet Chris Bilheimer; designer, artist, and all-around creative guy who, among other things, art-directed and illustrated album covers that make his portfolio look like a tribute to some of the most revered bands (like R.E.M., WeezerNeutral Milk HotelGreen DayNirvanaFoo FightersWidespread Panic and beyond).

We like how he describes how he sees the world:
“I’ll explain it like this,” he told Tribeza, “Pretend you are a child with a natural skill for something. You just instinctively draw an object exactly how you see it. Or you stack blocks in a way that looks really cool but you just know will be sturdy. Or you see light coming through a window and are excited by the shadows it creates across the floor. You gravitate towards becoming an artist, an architect or a photographer because this is just how you see the world. It is how your brain works—sometimes, the only way. It is instinctual and fun.”
