Indie funk artist, need album artwork for debut album And so it was, after a time, that he came upon a man. And he said to the man, 'Can you dig it?'. He said, 'Can you dig it?'. And the man, being originally of lowly origins, who had wandered that wilderness of DISTASTE-FOR-ALL-THINGS-MASS-PRODUCED, and who had been tried with baptisms of rock, hard funk, and jazzy spizzle, and tested with the burdens of the sorrow of too many lifetimes. That man said, 'Yeah!'. And it came to pass that he was welcomed to The Tribe Of The Plastic, Elastic Most Mildly Funktastic. He was -UNDERFLUKED-
What's your vision?
I need an illustration as per the sketch below in the style of Parliament / pFunk / Funkadelic / Bootsy Collins / Jimi Hendrix / Prince - Rainbow Children / NPG - Exodus Album - feel free to try different styles than the reference material - just make it funky, not cheesy! I have a seperate contest running for logos, this illustration will be used to place behind these logos in web banners, social media banners and album artwork The winning design will be used for album artwork so would ideally be square, however it will need enough detail to allow zooming on sections for banners, single release covers etc. Please listen to the following demos to get a feel for the style... https://soundcloud.com/underfluked/birth-of-the-mildly-funktastic https://soundcloud.com/underfluked/first-avenue-and-park Other demo tracks here... https://soundcloud.com/underfluked Please read the following to get an idea of the imagery I'm after... Take a look at the artwork I've attached to the brief, looking for zero straight lines :-) also worth searching the 'Gett off' single cover, although I'm after more 'npg exodus' and rainbow children with a touch of Parliament / P Funk / Jimi Hendrix than the single lines of the Gett off cover. Looking for the following vision, may be impossible... Pyramid in the centre background, all seeing eye on top. Surrounded by religious symbols (must include Ankh, Cross, Star, Moon, Sun, Square and Compasses, Pentagon and anything else that's funky). Cityscape, 'The city funk built' groovin' and shakin' to the bass baby! City is on the top left (no straight lines, needs to be funky!). There's a road leading to the city made out of funked up and mishapen piano keys, possibly slightly buried. This ties the background to the foreground and runs in front of the pyramid. The door of the pyramid is open and coming out of it is a heavenly-funk-being made of pure energy, underfluked? The one that welcomed him to the tribe of the plastic, elastic, most mildly funktastic? Funk knows! Just then, the people see the funk, the heavens open with aliens, a mothership and the horns of the revelation. A guitar appears in front of the funk-energy-being, and with the guitar's all-seeing-eye, it sees this world is funky. But it is sad, it sees with its one-funky-eye the world needs funk now more than ever. It spews forth the manifestation of the funky will of the energy of the Mildly Funktastic spirit in sorrowful cries of peace, love and booty baby. Feeding directly from an interspacial, intercosmic connection to the brain of Underfluked (he's here, but he may also be the spirit, or not! Who knows?) The crowd see this and gather. Skin heads and funky dreds living in harmony under the funk. All making their way, dancing, to the new city of funk. All the while, itsy bitsy spider does his thang in the bottom left corner. You know it. Peace. Should take you about a hit minute, coz u is funky, yeah.
Pyramid in the background with all religious symbols floating around the top (which has an all seeing eye) Coming out of the pyramid is a glowing aura being - the essence of the funk, coming to play the funky bendy guitar (that the being just materialized out of thin air) - the being is somewhere between golden flames and blue sparks over, around and through the pyramid and religious symbols is a rainbow made of funk power coming from the bottom of the guitar over and to the head of the guitar Funky road made from a piano keyboard leading to funky town with dancing towering bendy apartment blocks (no straight lines anywhere!) Crowds of people including skinheads and funky dreds all happy together, cheering and dancing and generally getting down - loads of different funky looking people of all types Funky guitar with peace and love and a flower for a whammy bar, plugged into Underflukes brain (where the funk comes from) with a coily cable of lurv Funky horns all around, like the horns of revelation - sounding the end of the world - but funky! Notice the trumpet with teh lips looking to french kiss anyway it can aliens in the sky with the religious symbols, hanging on to the outside of their crazy 'Plan 9 from outer Space' UFOs Funky little spider in the corner playing a musical instrument and getting down - Itsy Bitsy spider, doing his thang! Captions and comic book style badly written text placed about as per the sketch. Logo and 'underfluked' in the middle of the image will be overlaid later once their design is complete - you don't need to leave blank space for them. They will be provided once that competition ends. The round logo will look like a vinyl record, and the text in the middle of the image will be a golden 70s style font (all wavy and such) http://www.bootsycollins.com/ is another cool place to look for a style reference
