[Mostly Album] Design

If you’d like me to apply myself to a project you’re working on just email me so we can discuss what you want, compensation, and timelines.  Here are some of the album package designs/concepts I’ve created for some very talented musicians in the past. Only the most recent will appear. Please click the ‘continue reading’ link below to see the full post with all the designs. If you want to buy any of these albums directly from the artists just click their link above the image.

Madwort Saxophone Quartet – Live at Hundred Years Gallery

Silence Blossoms – Silence Blossoms
As an alternative to the physical CD of their album, I also made a poster (that comes with a download code for the album). I used stippling to create the explorer/spaceman in the image, and used micron 0.3 to 0.8 pens to do it. Take a closer, zoomed in look. It’ll be worth it!
