When I was a teenager in the 80’s I used to have patches of all of my favorite bands covering a denim jacket, I don’t know if it was a NYC thing or everyone did it, the more patches on your jacket, the more serious you were about music. I remember having a giant Aerosmith patch so that’s where the inspiration for ROCKS came to pass. The center picture of the album is stitched with wool thread, the black portion of the album is covered with individually embroidered patches. Each patch is hand placed to cover the whole background in shades of black patches, each of the 9 pieces are truly unique. The logo was created as an additional patch and collaged at the end.
