My man is a very talented singer and guitarist and he performs with a Hereford-based band called First Season. They asked me to illustrate/design the cover for their EP and I thought I’d share it with y’all. You can listen to a couple of tracks off the EP on soundcloud here. They’re working on their first album and from what I’ve heard it’s even better.

Meanwhile, here’s the cover what I did. Tom and Dave gave me a brief about a man drunkenly putting up his fists to a wind-blown tree, so that’s what they got. The image was indian inked with a brush, scanned into Photoshop, given the cardboard background and a sort of wood-cut texture. The typeface is Adobe Caslon Antiqua.
