Earlier in 2018, Austin-based metal band The Sword commissioned Thomas to create an illustration to be etched onto the B-side of a 12" single accompanying their "Used Future" LP. The single's A-side song is themed around Greek gods and serpents in relation to the giant storms of Texas. The original artwork was drawn using ink, brush, and nib. No computers were harmed in the making of this illustration! Thomas selected bright colors because life is too short for darkness and desaturated Instagram filters. It's a departure from his typical tattooing colors but similar in image and style.
