learn more about Volume One's cover art from Mark Lone

“Oderunt” by Mark Lone
Kraft art paper drawn with pencils,
chalk, ink, and marker

Mark Lone is a Wisconsin-based illustrator who has had artwork and screen prints in galleries and publications around the world. He will be set up with his art at the Crypticon in Minnesota, and he also has a piece in a “STRANGER THINGS” art show in California.

“The art is a handcrafted response to chronic pain, and the feelings one goes through while experiencing such pain for prolonged times. A true nod to invisible disease. Also a tribute to the music of Eau Claire, you know who you are! The original piece was drawn at The Mousetrap Tavern and is still available for purchase along with prints of the art at markloneart.bigcartel.com.” – The Artist

Volume One finds its cover art in a number of ways, from local art shows to random emails to knowing someone who knows someone who knows a great artist. The art always originates from a current or former Chippewa Valley resident. If you'd like to submit cover art, send us a message.
