Your 'sketch' idea is...what's the word? Overused? Though it could go with 'a different angle' as you said - for instance, instead of looking into the distance (as on your 'sketch') the view could be top-down, so the road becomes the background, with a toy pony (my little pony?) being squished and having skid-marks and lint sticking from all over; or maybe go utterly nuts and do something wholly avant-gardist - replace the pony with a peony and the road with an lsd-induced trail (road - trail, get the idea?). Alternatively, you could use the 'sketch', but stylize it into some art form, like cubism, impressionism, or expressionism - something whacky or graphic (pop art could also work, especially if you're playing punk, hip-hop, or one of them hipster genres). That's all I can suggest though.
What's your band playin' anyway?
