The release is a 6 track 10" vinyl by Birch Book and is housed in a recycled board gatefold sleeve complete with a version of the EP on CD, a woven patch and two art prints. As always I was given free reign on how the release should look, the only limitations being that it would be one colour printed on a recycled board and that the artist liked it!
I had been trying out a new illustration style for a while and felt that this release was a perfect partner for that style. The illustration style draws on Irish Celtic illustrations as well as Inuit folk art with a touch of psychedelia.
|A sketchbook doodle of a bird with something of a fish about him|
|From the same sketchbook a detail from a drawing of a hare|
|…and from a few pages later my first go at drawing the fox|
With this bubbling around in the back of my mind I started to doing the fox drawing.
I wanted a sense of balance between the animal and vegetable and to include something of the tree within the fox and vice versa. This lead me to here…
