This CD cover is a job I did for Andy Wells' Pilgrym project. Andy is a multi-talented musician, composer and engineer/producer that has worked with artists such as Sarah Brightman and Mike Rutherford. He is an energetic composer that has a deep fondness for creative and powerful music. I heard clips of some of the rough songs and these are brilliant! The CD illustration is only half of the piece, as the back cover continues the scene, but replaces the ghosty-girl with a gravestone.... flowers, trees, etc. the statue is half-submerged in a pond and the ship is far in the distance. Buy this album to see large cover and hear excellent cool prog music... you will not be disappointed.... I also fabricated an inner sleeve with a crumbled lighthouse (kept it simple), to give tons of room for the lyrics... which will not be used as I designed... sigh.... LOL
My niece-in-law posed for the ghostly-like girl leaning against the angel statue. My favorite part to design was the ship. I also did a back cover/inner-sleeve that makes the image one piece. A lyrics sleeve had the water with a lighthouse in ruins.
The large image is only 25% of the original and a bit of the detail has been lost.... but what are you going to do with art-pirates, in this day and age, what can you do? I had a fellow school teacher take my work and put it on her site without telling me. And she is supposed to be educated? Oh, by the way, I create the originals for the clients very large, so they can not only use them as CD art, but as posters. One band blew their cover up to 10 feet without any image grain... Cool!
