Steadfast is the debut EP for Virginia-based hardcore band Endeavor. Their drummer John and I go way back, from when I used to do work for his old band Life in Your Way. Given the band's name and EP title, we wanted to push the artwork in an "vintage sailor" direction, which is very outside of my usual style. So I drew mostly with micron pens, taking cues from some of the best hand-letterers out there, then scanned everything in for assembly. I also took the black & white photos in the background. Below is the cover, and a portion of the back panel.
