Album Covers

Posted by rob on October 31, 2012

Three LA bands have done me the honor of using my art for their album art and packaging this year.

The Manx' "Storms Thrashing Our Vessel" features my work both inside and out, using "Downstream Death Machines as it's cover, which folds out to it's full length for a nice full  spread.

Inside, the CD and backround features "The Choice Cut Cult" to complete the packaging.

Next, Conscious Summary and I worked together to put together the packaging for their new 7 inch record, and at long last, it has been released. I'm very happy with the results. The design all keys off of my painting, "The Open End", a piece which got partial inspiration from this collaboration.

There's a nice review of both the album and the artwork HERE, and another review of the album HERE. The album art combined with the experimental music of this band makes for a delightful package. See more about Conscious Summary on Facebook and MySpace, and you can possibly buy the album through HERE, though the situation appears a bit difficult.

Double Naught Spy Car is the third band who chose my work to grace a cover. Their album "Western Violence" features my piece "Island" on the front. Major honor. These guys have been around for awhile making good stuff.
