BoomArtwork produces an album cover for Swedish rock band Imperial State Electric.
Nicke Andersson; former front man of The Hellacopters approached BoomArtwork to create the art for the vinyl album of his new band. He asked for something bold and vintage to illustrate the record title 'Reptile Brain Music', so BoomArtwork set to work using his fabulous design and illustrative skills and made this punchy retro visual, he says "... First I drew the hand of Zeus with my brush and ink, and then the crocodiles eating each other's tail. In Photoshop I placed everything together and then started with the typography. Instead of using an existing typeface I thought it would make the album more special to create custom lettering. After finishing I added some filters to make it look like it was released in the 70's. It was so much fun to illustrate an LP album cover, as it is such a cool, tactile canvas to work on."

A Dream Life of Hackney Marshes is another beautifully crafted, limited edition album designed and illustrated by Frances Castle for Clay Pipe Music. Frances' atmospheric images are a perfect foil for Gareth E. Rees' words about the landscape of the Hackney Marshes and it's mix of ancient wetland, overgrown Victorian ruins, wild flower meadows, pylons, railway sidings and reservoirs. Ree's spoken word in collaboration with Jetsam's orchestration, takes us on a journey through this troubled dreamscape.
