This August, I had the honor to design and do illustrations on a CD cover for a local B.C. band from Victoria, Cole Grifter. Michael, the bassist and my old boss just sent me a copy of the CD.

Here’s the actual design and logo:

the garden of everything

December 3, 2009

Another Yoko Kanno (Majority of the music I own is Yoko Kanno, so bear with me) production featuring her protegee, Maaya Sakamoto and Steve Conte from the New York Dolls (!!). The lyrics are written by the eccentric Tim Jensen, and it is a beautiful poem about parallels. The Garden of Everything was written for RahXephon, an animated series just as eccentric and surreal that deals with the theme of love in a post-apocalyptic world. Illustration and design was all by Yamada Akihiro, a artist previously posted.

The series still remains close to my heart through using music as a main element, and a universal tale told in a unconventional way.

So what’s a person to do on a sick day besides consume hefty amounts of tynenol?

Stay on Tumblr all day and do Illustration homework. I am surprised I was productive. Clicky for a bigger view.

Perspective project for Illustration called Change of Heart, where we depict a moment in our lives where we literally change in perspective of a person of a place. It was done by switching back and forth from Photoshop and Illustrator, attempting to emulate Nakamura Yusuke but putting my own twist on it.
