Seconds – song images

I recently completed a series of illustrations for the soon-to-be-released Bisonics album “Seconds” – they have been compiled into a booklet that is included with the CD. These images are simple renditions of the song’s titles: in order to create cohesion throughout the pieces (which include the cover and CD images), I limited the palette, chose simple shapes and decided against trying to illustrate the very complex, personal lyrics for this project.
However, in a few cases (such as “The Block,” “Salmon Pink Raincoat” and “Soft Afternoons”) the lyricist of the songs had more input into the images and those are more conceptual in order to reflect the songs’ contents.

I also rendered this booklet into a poster format, which was displayed at a recent gallery show.
