Christmas with Late 80s Mercedes

AK_Late80sMercedes_ChristmasCover 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.

You can download your copy on itunes or visit their website to find a store with a physical copy.

Heres the full pack - which comes with their last album 'Diamonds'.



Sound the Ocean - Ghost Town

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.



Here are a few more panels from the Late 80s Mercedes CD - 'Diamonds'.  I had a great time working on this artwork - coming up with spy characters and their adventures in a musical espionage  jungle.

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.

My good friend Ryan from Locus Creative used my artwork to create the website

Ill add the full spread to my portfolio soon.
