My final piece for my Spring 2010 Illustration Studio class. A mix between two projects, this is both a mock-up album cover for Bat For Lashes’ second release, ‘Two Suns,’ as well as a logo-redesign for the band. I didn’t include the album name because I liked the painting as it was, but I might add it in Photoshop later… plus, it might have been overkill with the literal suns.
Gouache on cold press watercolor paper, stretched over canvas. (This was before I had gesso and absorbent ground to turn the canvas into a workable surface, d’oh.)
Actual piece is 10×10″.
Lettering is based off the font ‘Kingthings Gothique.’
Natasha Khan is bomb.
