Music is more than just a sound, more than just a waveform. Its the energy that links souls. There is no reason the album artwork should be any different. It should be the visual view of the artists noise.
The Tool cover was made with various effects and custom type. An image edited into an aggressively aged-looking mess of colour that catches the eye.
The design behind my Astroworld cover was to create a surreal/ space setting. I see it as a portal into Travis’s bright sound, and to show off some 3D skills of course.
The Deftones cover art was by experimenting with 3D and 2D softwares. Taking inspiring ideas from their music videos and album promotion.
