Internet Mashup sensation William Marancy is releasing an album and I was lucky enough to provide the album cover.
The sheer volume of artists featured on this album is definitely a selling point, which is why I opted to have them represented on the cover as clearly as possible without distracting from the title.
I rendered all the artists names and the album name with an ink brush pen to give it that handmade quality. A handwritten font would have felt like a cop-out. I separated all the artists names from the scan, cleaned them up and then exported them.
This was a lot of fun to do and William was super cool to work with. It was uncharted territory for me but I’m really happy with the result!
By the way, there won’t be a physical edition because of the nature of the work, but I thought a mockup did the design more justice, so don’t mistake these for product shots.
