Holiday parties with friends are a huge part of what makes this season so wonderful. That’s why we asked Jess Rotter, the incredible NYC-based illustrator and DJ, to put together this Holiday Afterparty mix. Jess’ hand-drawn illustration style and musical taste was inspired early on by her dad’s record collection, and the mix features some true 1970s pop-psyche gems! It’s perfect for that moment at the end of a snowy night when a celebration dwindles to a low-key gathering, so pour yourself some eggnog and enjoy.
Jess Rotter’s drawings are regularly featured on album covers for artists like Best Coast, besides appearing on book covers, shopping bags, t-shirts, and wall murals. Her first graphic novel, “Paradise,” will be released in 2013.
