Despite not setting out to do so, after handling the work for Jaltive’s albums, I was soon getting a reputation as an ‘album guy’. As such it didn’t take long for indie band Empty Nest to contact me for a cover.
Their newest single would be entitled “rotten petal” and unlike my previous briefings this one was very clear.
They wanted a flower whose petals were rotten with one blowing away in the wind. And thus I delivered to them a set of sketches, some of them shown below.
The reaction was clear though. “The third“, followed immediately by the comment “this is exactly what we had in mind“. Can’t get any more clear than that!
