I have been jonesing to do an album cover since I was a kid and I finally got my chance. FROM THE DEPTHS OF HELL TO THE GATES OF HEAVEN is the new CD from Lac La Biche artist Leo Biollo and it drops sometime soon. Its great heavy metal with a surprisingly strong and positive message and its a concept album to boot, so I can't wait to hear the whole thing.
I was lucky enough to contribute a front and back cover to Leo's CD and here's a glimpse at the pain staking process:
These are the pencils.
These are the inks, which always seem to ruin the pencils.
And these are the colors, which I'm told make this hellish cover look like a desert.
And the battle continues . . .
