A few weeks ago I was given a CD and asked to come up with a cover! Our friend and Adam’s co-worker Steven creates all kinds of cool music and this particular collection was based off H.P. Lovecraft’s poems. As I listened to the eerie sounds and beats I could not help but remember one of my favorite books as a child, “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark,” and the artwork within it. I loved the way those creepy pictures and frightening stories made me feel (the same feeling the music evoked) and that was the abstract emotion I wanted to capture in my image.
Here you can see just how different the background really was!
I thought this transition was kind of funny….mostly because it happened so quick. We ran out to take pictures, then we came home, got changed and ran to the grocery store. Also apparently I have a fondness for burgundy hats.
