What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Album cover for new album called "Rising Tide Blues" (also name of title track). Looking for a thought provoking album cover that conveys the disturbing and insidious fact of rising ocean levels and the impact that might have on the world. Not looking for anything too dark or pessimistic but happy for a heavy dose of irony. Optional to include a guitar in the imagery (I play a white fender stratocaster and Black Gibson ES 303). I imagine a montage/ collage format with different elements.I like the idea of a cover that you can look at for a while to decipher the meaning or find new elements. Having said that it also needs to be impactful at a glance given the size of your average thumbnail on iTunes. My first album was sky blue with clouds and would prefer to avoid similarity to that if possible. Warmer colours would be nice. http://www.teddy-garcia.com/store/c…ducts.html All the above are suggestions - happy to see left field creative ideas if preferred.
Demos can be heard here, including title track. https://soundcloud.com/teddygarcia/sets/demos
Album has a range of themes but climate change is the main one. especially title song, Elemental and Dark Clouds.
Album is deliberately mutli-genre with a sort of historical journey through blues influenced styles from African, through delta blues, funk and rock. Images provided are just suggestion to get the thought processes flowing. Not looking for copies necessarily. The one that I keep coming back to is the Planet of the Apes image of the Statue of Liberty stuck in the sand. A cultural reference to that might work well.
