Pop: Album Artwork

In 2011 I was contacted to do the artwork for two related EPs by Cork band, Slow Motion Heroes. The lads had very definite concepts already in place behind both EPs. The one featured here is titled "Pop" and was five of their more upbeat, catchy tunes. Working to quite a tight deadline I produced the above drawing dealing with each theme. I worked in markers (copic *swoon*!) on cream Ingrés 702 paper. I went pretty mad with the markers, hoping to capture the spontaneity and energy of the album. I pared the image back in the end to a simpler motif, the germ of something bigger!
