He also has crafted an enormous amount of cover art for various acts including ONeohtrix Point NEver, Peaking Lights and Real Estate. His art is reminiscent of airbrushed 1970s rock albums but he has utilized computer-manipulated collage and hand-drawn art to bring a modern touch to the style. Commenting on his process-oriented technique Beatty says, "It's the same way I play music-- I just sit down and start drawing or making shapes in the computer, and see where it goes."
