INTERVIEW WITH JEFFREY EVERETT Artist for 2021 Summer Lovin’ can wrap We’ve admired the work of Jeffrey Everett for a while now, so we were thrilled when he agreed to take on our Summer Lovin’ artwork this year.  Jeff has created art for bands like the Foo Fighters, The Decemberists, Jason Mraz, Gaslight Anthem, and Flight of the Conchords.
