Promo CD cover for Red Queen Contest. The illustration is a very old map of the centre of the earth. I just isolated this section from a larger piece added the colour and a few other things. This 3 song promo will be followed by a full album later in the year.

Not a music post. Bavaria's City Racing show rolled into Dublin last weekend. The image above is over a year old though. In the early planning stages of the event I was asked to produce images for the team to work with, attract sponsors etc. It was to be based on existing work for Moscow and Rotterdam. I spend a lovely spring morning cycling around Dublin photographing iconic buildings and put together a load of options. The folks at City Racing picked a little from column A and a little from column B (and some from C and D) and we landed on this.
I admit that when this job landed on my desk I had no idea how to even pronounce Avicii nevermind know what it was or sounded like. Five seconds online sorted that out. Of course I'd heard Avicii.
For this artwork I got a flat version of the London show art and was asked to make it work for Dublin. O2 provided nice high res jpg of Dublin and I fairly painstakingly put it together. Of course the next day I got the layered artwork from London but sure the work was done by then.
Poster for Forbidden Fruit which was a three day "city centre festival" in Dublin. All the things you'd expect from a weekend music festival; shorts with wellies, fancy food, booze, tents, music, questionable sound but without the camping. You go home. So the design then. I don't claim to have done this from scratch but I was tasked with updating it with very specific aims. See you next year.
