...IN YOUR CONSTELLATIONS ep by THE OUT Album Artwork Illustration
LISTEN ON SPOTIFY PROJECT OVERVIEW …In Your Constellations in an EP by an indie/punk rock band called The Out. When the band approached me to design an album cover for them. The band had a vision that was loosely inspired by impressionistic painting. To complete the project, I painted the front and back covers on two 12 inch by 12 inch canvases using acrylic paints. They were then photographed and edited in Adobe Photoshop with typographic elements added. METHODOLOGY When the band presented me with their idea of a cover design that was inspired by Impressionism, and asked me to design their album cover, I jumped at the challenge to paint in that style. After listening to the EP, I came up with a concept that straddled the line of Impressionism and Surrealism. The visual was of a little girl standing on a hill and blowing a dandelion. The seeds of the dandelion float off into the darkening sky and become stars of a constellation that forms the band's logo. Sketching the concept, I quickly got to work painting the scene. I used a primary color palette with white and black paints. For the Typography, I suggested l having no text album, but after discussing it with the band, we opted for a script typeface that was elegant, and presented itself more as an accent to the painting. I used Vladimir Script Regular for the simple text for both front and 
back covers. typography
