Here are some t-shirt design ideas for The Dykeenies. They are the only productive thing I’ve done in the past few weeks. L.A. Noire has systematically destroyed my life, and I regret nothing. Actually that’s a lie. If I’d never played the game I’d never have gone into this ridiculous depressive slump from finishing it and the fantasy having to come to a vicious end.


The Dykeenies: new album artwork project

Posted in Graphic Design with tags , , , on October 22, 2011 by Gabriele

The Dykeenies just dropped their new album about a month ago, and guess who did the album art? Yes. It was me. This is the second time I’ve worked for them. Here is the first job. Here are some samples that you might want to check out. The photos are not mine, they are (c.) The Dykeenies. Basically they sent me a big old file filled with photos from their studio and these were to be used in constructing the album art along with their logo… and of course all the text was also provided for me to work with.

the official album cover:

A mock-up of the t-shirt. The final design was pretty much this, but the colour was slightly different and totally monotone:

This was quite a pressurised job by comparison to what I’m used to, but I’m glad about how everything turned out. It was also good to get back into basic photo editing, since my illustration work usually under-develops these skills.
