Folk Devils and Moral Panics
This is artwork I have just completed for one-man-music-show Onemancabal
I just wanted to share this piece because I am so very proud of it, I put my heart and soul into this work – and I think when you listen to the music you’ll agree it suits. The idea for this piece was to create a long artwork that would be divided into the various parts of the CD packaging – so the far left is the cover, with the middle section on the inside front cover and the inlay, and the far right is the back of the CD. My intention was to have just a few characters coming onto the front and back of the case, to entice people to open it up and be blown away by the intricate illustration inside. Like a reward for buying the CD! We wanted to have innocent looking characters with a slightly sinister edge to them – reflecting the music (which has some beautiful folky, traditional sounds but isn’t all it seems). It was a great blend of my two distinctive styles and I am absolutely in love with it!
I’ll be posting details and credits on my website soon – and perhaps some snap shots of how it all came together…enjoy!
P.S This is only a demo CD, so fingers crossed Onemancabal gets signed and we can all buy his beautiful music…
