I just finished this album art for Dean Fields new EP entitled “Any Minute Now.” Dean came to me with some ideas and symbolism that represented his journey, discovery and transition in continuing his music and writing career in Nashville.
This is the third album I’ve designed for Dean, but it’s the first time I was able to really implement my illustrations. So, when he approached me with the album concept I was stoked to get to work.
What’s nice about working with Dean is he really wants the artistry to come out, so he is hesitant to give you too much direction. At the same time, as an illustrator and designer I like to understand a little bit of where the inspiration and concept of the album originate. In the end, the universal truths within the concept allow me to extend that metaphor visually. It was the perfect balance of information and intuition.
I love drawing with sense of immediacy. I love letting the lines fall where they will and really committing to the awkwardness of it all. The album concept of “transition” lends itself to making mistakes and “running with it.” So, in the spirit of the process I wanted to share these behind-the-scenes images of creating the album as well. Hope you enjoy.
