We are about to slide into the silly season full of Christmas cheer! To provide the sound track Late 80s Mercedes have released a Christmas Album which I got to create the artwork for! Christmas is a bit different down here in the southern hemisphere so these tunes are for sipping your wine on the porch as you watch the summer evening come to an end.
Heres the full pack – which comes with their last album ‘Diamonds’.
Last year I also had the privilege to work on one other album, this time for a band called ‘Sound The Ocean‘. They released their new single recently called ‘Ghost Town‘ which I made the illustrations for. I’ve been quite keen on illustrated maps lately so I decided to make a map of an old abandoned ghost town. I will have the spreads of the whole CD package in my gallery soon but here are a few images of the cover, inside spread and cd.
This back panel was inspired by the lyric from one of their songs ‘Theres a party at the end of the week..’ – which I imagined was whispered between these too faceless characters pictured above.
Ill add the full spread to my portfolio soon.
