Over Sketch

Always liked the cover to Eric Burdon’s 1967 album, Eric Is Here. Wondered who had done the cover. Credit was to Nancy Reiner.

Did a search. Amazed to find that she was the artist who did the cover to the first posthumous Jimi Hendrix album, The Cry of Love, released in 1971:

Wondered if there was more art from her. Turned out that she had done several album covers between 1967 and 1971, including albums by Bill Evans and Brother Jack McDuff.

Then nothing.

Then found by her half-siblings in 2006, three months after her death. She had been living on social assistance in New York city.

Where does this talent
