.:this is my design:.noir:. I’m stoked about episode 2 tonight!!! I thought I’d post the black and white version of this, as this piece and the covers I’ve been doing have given me a chance to explore my digital color process. I’m finding interesting solutions or myself, but still lose a little bit in the final, like the books in the back, the antlers and fish hooks, and the mad dog in the back. Important things like slowing down in the thumbnail and pencil stage would save some of that heartache in the end. Talking to myself helps too — I’m not crazy! This jacket is a little tight though.
After listening to St. Vincent’s new album, I had been wanting to do a piece about her. I had a day off of work and decided to finally move past the “ugly” stage it had been sitting in. I’ve been drawn to the brand of gentle, bright madness she expresses with her sound, and on top of the geometric/pastel imagery in her new album, it makes for a wide aesthetic wealth to glean from. Had a lot of fun with the noise filter on this one.
