A Beautiful Vinyl Record.

2 days ago, I was given a vinyl copy of “Love Lust tales” by Glasgow band Louise McVey & Cracks In The Concrete and I have to say, I’m really pleased with how it all turned out.

I drew the front cover and after I turned the artwork over to the band a year ago, I started to worry about how the back of the album would look. I worried about the type of font that would be used on the record itself etc… I was pretty much scared about the album details and text being out of sync and style with the front cover because I wouldn’t be involved with that side of things.

There was also a time where nobody knew if the record would even be released on vinyl but I gotta say that I worried for nothing because it’s a BEAUTY!

Most importantly, the record sounds amazing and I would be really pleased if you bought yourself a copy.

Album Cover Artwork: “Love Lust Tales”.

Due out on vinyl, CD and download on June 15th 2012, this is my album cover artwork for “Love Lust Tales”, the debut album from Glasgow band Louise McVey & The Cracks In The Concrete:

The cover took a lot of time and wine and was drawn with black biro pen.
No computers were involved.
The background is based on a crumbling Detroit ballroom and the piano was drawn from the piano as used by the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.

I’ll post details of where you can buy “Love Lust Tales” on my Twitter and Facebook pages just as soon as I know and in the meantime, visit Louise McVey & The Cracks In The Concrete HERE and HERE.

The band sound like some sort of twisted Tim Burton nightmare and in my book, that’s ALWAYS a good thing.
