I’ve inked a couple of deals regarding artwork this summer, so there’s a few cool projects going to happen in the near future. First of all, I just wrapped up the new Evoken artwork – this one is coming out on Profound Lore, and hopefully due to some exposure. It’s coming on a real nice digipack as well. The process was really fast this time, but sometimes that can produce the best results. Check out the front cover, and a couple of snippets from the rest in the portfolio!
I’m also due to start working on cover for a hardcore band called «From Strength to Strength» in a short time – this one is getting the more hand drawn approach, as a lot of projects do these days. It’s really nice to get inquiries for hand drawn artwork, as this is a thing I’m really enjoying. It’s also quite nice in the summer I think. For some reason I enjoy drawing more in the summer. But I’m also stoked on doing more graphic design-related stuff, so the balance between these two ways of working is really nice. I feel really lucky to be able to get jobs in both areas of this field.
Other news, I’m going to do the new Havnatt-album as well, this one is due later summer, and is also getting a more hand drawn treatment! I have some nice ideas here, and I’m quite stoked on getting started on this one, probably more against late June sometime. On top of this, Ekkolodd is finishing up an album these days, so I’ll be working with them as well. Just finished up cover for their first single. The guys will be playing some live shows this summer, among others on Hove festival, which is quite a nice gig for them. Ekkolodd is also located just across the street, so I guess it’s quite easy to communicate and collaborate on the art in some way.
