Menagerie

Art and Music mash-up Menagerie invites illustrators to put pen to paper and draw artworks inspired by musical tracks for a mixtape-cum-magazine. It is the brainchild of illustrator Jake Blanchard, who chooses the tracks, sends them to the illustrators then compiles the work into the album artwork.
