The release of the new album 'Everblack' from The Black Dahlia Murder has been announced and the artwork I contributed has been revealed. The job entailed the full layout for the package including a 3-panel gatefold illustration. It's actually a triptych of three separate oil on canvas paintings which I photographed then digitally stitched together into a sprawling landscape. The three paintings together measure 180cm wide.

If you're a fan of the band you can listen to the new song "Into the Everblack" here as well as preorder the album (check out that sexy purple & white marbled vinyl!) -

Beastwars Rip It Up!

An odd job that came up recently was a cover illustration for Rip It Up magazine April/May issue. The mag's  cover usually consists of photographs of featured musicians, so the opportunity to do a far-out digital painting of local Wellington band Beastwars was an opportunity not to pass up. Extra-terrestrial calamari anyone?
