My boys in blood-and-black in Detroit, Graveside Manner, has a new album coming out sometime in June, and I just finished stitching together their album artwork. And let me just say, I’m very, very proud of what the guys have let me do for them. I won’t spill the blood on the entire package just yet, so I’m merely providing a preview of the cover which I illustrated from one of my own photos.
Rocking the devil horns and corset is a model that’s local to Toronto named Ashley Lotecki. The always evil Myla Strange did the hair and make-up, while Miss Lotecki provided her own wardrobe (as can be seen in the previous post). I then used the photo as an underlay and went to town making her red and devilish. A little back-and-forths with the gravediggers in the band, and bam! Mind you, this is just the cover. I’m chomping at the bit to show off the whole package… but I’ll wait. More to come…
Update: Below you’ll find the full spread of Graveside’s Devil Girl album artwork. Warning, it’s a large file, so please be patient. (I believe it’s 1400 pixels wide, so be prepared to scroll!)
