Tentacle Entertainments 4

Double gatefold CD

Collaborations took place at the label’s studio, the home of Hot Head Show’s lead singer and guitarist. The artwork concept process was extensively documented and discussed. Selections were made by fatigue, and progress by pressure, for a bright and lasting impression.

The final graphical work attests to the music’s thorough development processes. You can buy through Hot Head Show’s website on CD or vinyl.

Sun Calendar

Interactive graphic demonstration

A plot of sun angle for everyday in the year with sun altitude tracked in real-time by an animated yellow circle. Solstices, equinoxes and user events are added as labels to specific points on the curve.

The graphic starts with a very compressed overview that can be magnified to stretch out hours across the screen in broad arcs. Accurate seasons times are coloured in the background.

Manouche Jazz Quintet

Musician branded materials

This was a collaboration with singer guitarist Jean De Talhouet.

The Kamao Quintet take their inspiration from the legacy of the great Django Reinhardt and traditional Manouche and Romani music. Fronted by singer and guitarist Jean de Talhouet, the band includes clarinet (Dave Shulman), violin (Sharon Subbarao), gypsy guitars (Dave Kelbie), and double bass (Ruth Goller), creating a beautiful sound that complements the vocals with haunting and lyrical harmonies.

Tentacle Entertainments 2

Double gatefold CD

Collaborations took place between front man Jonah Brody, directing focus, bassist Jordan Copeland illustrating context and Drummer Max Hallet conceptualising visuals. There was some input from guitarist Jean de Talhouet. I drove the execution.

Most graphical work took place in a few two or three hour sessions. Progresssion was rapid thanks to excellent, creative photographic assets and purposeful dynamics within the effort.
