CD Cover Design & Illustration
Catlow is Vancouver based indie, electro-pop band that commissioned an illustration for their sophomore release on Aporia Records. The 6 song EP called Pinkly Things was a collection of introspective, melancholic songs with edgy and emotional female vocals. I wanted the illustration to be delicate with heavy undertones. I chose to do a photo manipulation rather than hand drawn illustration because I could achieve the mood for the theme in a more effective way. I began with concept sketches and developed my idea by experimenting with Photoshop paint brushes, texture overlays, custom shadows and blending of various images. Included here are the preliminary proof (below) and the final version that was approved (top).
