I had the great experience of working with him on the album art for this release, his second for Folkwit Records in the UK. You absolutely gotta check this guy out!
He’s a violinist/composer/multi-instrumentalist that sounds like a symphony crossed with folk and indie, and road trips, and time spent exploring cities…his music makes you picture movies in your head. It’s rich, son.

Started another painting on wood, about 5′ tall and 3.5′ wide. As of now it is called “In The Beginning We Lived Outside”. Check out that grain pattern. Danggg son. $12/sheet plywood at Home Depot…It may not be suitable for building anything, but it looks cool when you paint on it.
The title was inspired by a lyric from musical mastermind Valeska Gavotte‘s forthcoming release, Songs for Sinfonietta, which I am very excited to be designing the album art for. It’s shaping up to be pretty spooky and dark so far. Borderline metal. Br00tal.

I have recently had the great pleasure of working with esteemed musician Valeska Gavotte of Folkwit Records. Valeska is an incredible composer from the eastern seaboard of our great country and I was thrilled when he asked me to do the album art for his first EP, Botanica, back in 2012. He later used “Victory Day” for his second release, “The Sword and the Shield”, and now they are being re-released and pressed together as one CD across the pond by Folkwit Records of England. Be sure to check out his music, it’s fuginggg sweet. There’s nothing like it.
I’ll be doing the art for his 3rd release “Songs for Sinfonietta” over the next few months. More info soon!
