DWELLINGS


Here's a recently completed project - the wrap-around cover for the band Cormorant's next release. It was an epic undertaking, the band were very clear that they wanted a medieval style tower packed with illustrative interpretations of the songs on the record. With a snake. And a war. And creepy angels. And a flying machine. And a screaming mob. And... you get the idea. There were times I thought it was impossible.  I think I'm most pleased with the text treatment of the title - those calligraphy classes in college finally paid off! Looking forward to seeing how it looks on a CD!

I looked at the image first and was impressed with the multitude of details. And then I read how it all came together. You pulled it off incredibly well - the medieval feel included. Fantastic work!

Really nice piece of work, especially the feathered poeple uptop, any chance of seeing some of the preliminary stuff or did you just dive straight into this one?
