Benbo logo - hand-drawn block letters with black outlines and orange fill.
Cover art for the music release 'Room In A Box' by Benbo & Michelle Bee. Square flat background with a slight colour gradient from neon green at the bottom to neon yellow-green at the top. In the centre of the square is a rough pen and ink line drawing of a 3D trapezoid box. Each face of the box has been digitally filled with a different image - on the top is an extreme closeup of Benbo, showing his face squeezed into the box from hairline to just above the top lip. Benbo is a white man with brown hair and NHS spectacles. His eyes are blue-grey and he has freckles, thick brown eyebrows and a five o-clock shadow of a moustache under his nose. His expression is quizzical. On the leftmost surface of the box is an extreme closeup of Michelle Bee. Michelle Bee is a white woman with brown hair, brown eyes with dark lashes, and pink lips. Her expression is peaceful and her face is bathed in warm light and reflected/refracted circles of light. The rightmost surface of the box has two wonky diagonal pen lines running from the left side to the bottom side, and the lines on the right side have been so untidily and repeatedly drawn that they cut into the bottom right corner. Together, these additional lines split the surface, which has been coloured black, leaving the largest part of it as a cut-off triangle with its base at the top and its truncated apex at the bottom. Inside this space is the text ‘ROOM IN A BOX’, printed in capitals in yellow retrofuturistic type, neon yellow for the words ‘ROOM’ and ‘A’, pastel yellow for ‘IN’ and ‘BOX’. Parallel to the top of Benbo’s surface is the legend ‘Benbo & Michelle Bee’, spelt out using the Benbo logo (hand-drawn slightly extruded 3D writing drawn in black and filled with orange) and hand-scrawled capitals for ‘& Michelle Bee’. Assembled on top of each visible surface of the box is an assortment of hand-drawn, digitally-coloured characters and objects from the Benbo universe, including (clockwise): Anxious Brain, Flying Grandchild, the banana from How To Assemble Your Thingy, Doktor Fear, one of the Mushroom Sisters with two Mushroom Children, the Sheep On Drugs with the Rainbow Triangle, Dancing Ant, Cat Poo, the golf flag from FACTS, Chess Blobs, Hairy Bird, Handshake Bastard, Circle Conspiracy Theorist, Captain Wassock in both original and Benbo revision costumes, Geoffrey, Wavy Stickperson, Triple-Eyed Cow, Angry Triangle, Doktor Fear’s Cabinet and the Diagnostic Machine. In the top left corner, very small, is the head from the Pink Lizard Music logo - a bright pink lizard head with open mouth and forked tongue.
