Velvet Monkeys "Everything is Right" cassette cover, 1981


Raiter designed this cassette "j card" for the Velvet Monkeys , a Washington, DC punk/alternative band. You can see the classic Bob style in this design. The name of his design business was "Crop Mark Studios," which you can barely see if you look closely at the picture.

bob lived it right, always pushing the edge. he was a hell of guy to party with, listen to, and watch in action. and he poured that same passion into his art, with a focus sharp and intense. thanks bob. - don fleming
