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.

Late 80s Mercedes - Diamonds Album

At the end of last year I had the pleasure to join the Late 80s Mercedes crew as they worked on their third album this time with mostly original music. Their new songs have a 60's spy movie feel which lead me to inspiration from the legendary Saul Bass and plenty of 60's european tv and film posters. Most of the artwork was also inspired by their song 'Diamonds' (especially the line 'she's got diamonds in her eyes..) which I think would make a great campaign song for a jewelry company/party brand. They release their album this weekend so I will post more about my process soon.

Thanks to the band for giving me an opportunity to interpret their awesome music!
