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…

A mish-mash of artist, illustrator and designer. Fascinated by all things dark, whimsical and vintage her work is characterized by a collision of Victorian vignettes, rockabilly pin-ups, religious iconography, tattooing, 20th century circus and fairground lore, and a slight obsession with El Dia De Los Muertos.

    This is a wonderful piece of work and it shows something I would like to build on – the link between music and the visual arts. I would like us to find a place to feature music somehow. But for now we just have such wonderful art to enjoy.

    You are so talented Jordan, not only is your imagery superb and unique to you, the way you’ve handled the typography in sympathy with your art style just works so well. So glad you put this up to share, and yes, you should be very proud of this piece. Your heart and soul definitley shines through in it. Great work!

    Jordan – this is fantastic congratulations on the work. Such a big project as so wonderfully executed.

    Last year I put together a continuous unbroken comic that was 10m long for a web project. One of the hardest things I have ever done. One off images are easy – they can be bold and eye catching and can sit anywhere on the page. Trying for the reveal idea you put together is incredibly difficult because you have to work on each page as well as the whole thing at once.

    Congratulations on doing it so well.
