32 hours on Photoshop later and I think I’ve done a good job. Although not technically illustration, these compostions of over 60 photos/scans/drawings constitute the artwork of an 8 page CD cover booklet for Death & a Cure’s latest album. It’s a bit of a sneak preview as the album isn’t out just yet, but it’s some of my most ambitious work in years and I can’t wait to get it out there.
Lucky to have worked on this fine project. Lead single from Perth based Death & a Cure, The Endless Escape, which I got to illustrate and design. There will be an album launch in Perth soon, followed by a multi-date tour of the US. Get all the pesky details and have a listen at his myspace.

When I was a kid, I really wanted to call the Ghostbusters. I was pretty young and from seeing the movie I couldn’t quite work out if they were real or not. I mean, the ghosts looked real, then they had the newspapers and all the publicity on the movie. So I thought that was real. And then, at the end they have them doing a parade through New York with all the people celebrating. All this added up to it being real. One hundred percent real. I just figured that sort of thing didn’t happen in our city.
I never worked out the difference between documentary and film when I was young. Cartoons I knew weren’t real, but live action film? Who knows? I had the same problem with Degrassi High. Are these actors or are they stalking kids with camera’s. Sports films I often thought were real too and I really hoped Doctor Who wasn’t real. But at least I knew Wrestling wasn’t real.
