Rookie, an indie rock band from Lexington, asked me to produce the artwork for their second album, Into the Wind. Since they were still trying to get their name out, I wanted to come up with a design that would be arresting as well as attractive. It needed to draw people’s eyes.
I wanted to try my hand at a masked paint technique, so I picked a bold purple and went to work. I’m pleased with the result, and it synced well with the wind imagery of the album.
I think you’re not even allowed to start an indie rock band until you can make a cool face like the one lead singer Abe is making here.
More wind imagery. I looked long and hard to find the right kind of windmill—something with a retro vibe.
Put the disc in your CD player and it spins just like a windmill. Now I just need to find someone who still uses CDs.
