Album Jacket 060608 by CrankBot Album Jacket 060608 by CrankBot
hi!
this is an image that is rather old by now.Originally executed as an album cover commission based on the band's idea. However, i never really considered the imagery to be appropriate to their style and aesthetics;i persuaded them to change it for something simpler and bolder.

barring the weird format and composition (wrap-around jacket w/ lots of space for typo) ,this is a decent illo.

I find it odd you would describe this as photorealistic in any way... I find it quite the opposite... yes, it's representational, but the flow and life in your lines are just gorgeous. I'd be curious to know what kind of music the band did.

thank you, sir. :) it's the 'art style' i am consciously trying to avoid, but alas, most ppl would rather ask for this ';photorealistic deco' as cover art

I love it all the same - you're work is always outstanding. Hoe you're well by the way and keeping busy. How did the Steampunk story copyright issues go in terms of the Mieville references I made?

No worries. Be good to see you back over at Erth Chronicles if you manage to find a spare moment. Take care for now.
