CLIENT: Frontiers Records
PROJECT: Burning Rain - Face The Music Album artwork 

Being commissioned by Frontiers Records always seems to lead to some fantasitcal art and fantasy styled design work. This latest album “Face The Music” from Doug Aldrich and Keith St Johns band Burning Rain was no exception.

I was introduced to Doug and Kieth who at first were going in a more classic rock direction. As our conversations developed so did the artwork concept and quickly keith wanted to explore the mermaid legend, the idea was quickly supported by the label. This lead us down some rough sketches and lots of research for what tiny elements we can add to really tie the legends in, including the good and evil cherubs, haunting supernatural beauty and obviously ships crashing onto rocks.

Once the idea had been nailed down it quickly evolved into what you can see on the cover with the devastation of the ship used inside the gatefold layout.
