Sublime’s 40oz. To Freedom is one of the most beloved albums in Southern California not only because of the feel-good summer songs album like“Santeria” and“What I Got,” but because of the iconic cover art.
Designed by Long Beach artist Opie Ortiz, a childhood friend of bassist Eric Wilson’s, the now-famous sun was inspired by an airbrush t-shirt Ortiz made for Sublime frontman Brad Nowell. Now40oz. To Freedom and its cover art are synonymous with summertime and the sunny beaches of Southern California.
