I recently had the opportunity to do the artwork for an underground thrash compilation put together by Tridroid Records. Thrash is one of my all time favorite genres, so this was a blast! I really wanted to honor the legacy of all the greatest thrash bands in history but still create something new in the process. It's a mix of photography and illustration. I really want to do more metal covers!
The comp features 15 raw-as-fuck-ripping tracks from thrash bands all over the globe. It's available now on Tridroid's BandCamp page. And there will be physical copies soon!
Bang your head!!!
Recently, local Wichita, Kansas alternative rockers The Fifth Fire asked me to design them an album cover. After a nice discussion with their singer Mark Bryant about their music and how to portray it visually, we decided to run with the idea of a figure of significant power or royalty who, despite his social standing, is in a state of sadness. They currently don't have any of the recordings on their
page, but hopefully they will soon. The cd comes out June 18th.
