I have a confession to make:I am not an artist, I am a collector. Or better yet: I craftily create collections of self made artworks and artifacts that look old, in the hope that future people will find and collect them.
Here are some artworks I designed for other people. They are intended for posters, CD-covers or otherwise. I like to work with other people, it forces me to try and use techniques and subject matter I would not normally use. It teaches me stuff.
Die Schöne Müllerin
A poster I made for a concert of Franz Schubert’s ‘Die schöne Mülerin’ performed by Wolfgang Mirlach and Akane Kubo. The idea was that the poster could be used with both sides up (water or air on top).
Prunx – CD Cover Artwork
A cd cover I made for a band called ‘Prunx’. One of the reasons we know each other is because of our passion for science fiction. I made illustrations for 6 of the 7 songs on the CD. They chose two. We met each other because we all loved Scifi movies. So I immediately knew what to make for them.
Made it for a band, as a CD cover, but liked this idea about a city under the earth so much, I have given much thought to creating a whole series, a complete project maybe. Never gotten to it. Yet. Who knows. It still reminds me of old SF books, the lost word, people living underground – with dinosaurs of course.
This one is in color, but in the end we used a black and white version. It was more punk that way.
