"Stone's Reach" is the name of the new (2009) album by Australian alternative metal band Be'lakor. I provided some artwork for the CD booklet and the back cover – and the CD turned out great. The image on the front cover (i.e. the last of the four pics below) is the "Head of Medusa" by Gean Francois.

Check out Be'lakor on MySpace: www.myspace.com/belakor

The following images of mine were used:
