040609 - 170609 //GATES - 'Moths Have Eaten the Core' (revised post)
I recently completed this 6-panel + Obi, folio-style packaging for Canadian drone band GATES debut release.
The general working theme: labyrinths, claustrophobia and the detached mindset within subterranean spaces. Bryan Walker, the sole member of said project, is also a photographer and provided all the insane shots of caves, underground cathedrals and gargoyles to be used and manipulated as elements towards the layout - pretty cool. You can also check out Bryan's other related projects here: ORCA and GARDENIA
Aside from a MASSIVE (long overdue) + pending update of various design projects that I am still awaiting approvals for to post here: there is a NEW interview for Beau over @Hammer Smashed Jazz, good times, great blog (click the link to read said interview)
The Wolves in the Throne Room posters that I designed and printed (see previous post) will be for sale within the next few weeks (NOTE: that these prints will be variants from the prints they sold on tour - more info on that later).
I am STILL wrapping up the final mixes and artwork for 'Diaspora' pt.2 and will be rehearsing live performance material for potential shows in the near future - I guess it's time to test the waters.
Also note that I am involved in a new project named CIRCLE of EYES featuring Thrull from South Bay black metal horde NECRITE and myself on guitars, please check that out!
Until Next time,
