Guys smile.gif Here's our 'Seeds' EP cover artwork first sketch and the story behind it biggrin.gif

We are dealing with an atypical booklet - it has 6 faces and it is folded in 3 but on a vertical axis. This format was thought up so that it would also back up the vertical concept of the booklet - out of that seed which resembles a brain, a whole world is born, its climax being the man made mask, meant to be worn so that the human being could be accepted in society. The mask was built out of all the experiences, feelings, memories and random images from the space in which the human mind has gathered all these information. The cover is closely linked with the video as well, as you will find out if you check out this post here: https://www.guitarmasterclass.net/guitar_fo...showtopic=46311

I can tell that a whole lot of thought is going into this. The artwork matches and reinforces the concepts described for the video and it fits the song well. Once again, thank you for sharing this. It is nice to see and learn about the process that goes on behind the scenes. I'm looking forward to learn more and to get ahold of the finished product! Keep up the great work!

that is really cool. I like how minimalist and clear the front cover is and then it opens into a much more complex piece. you guys really managed to nail that concept.
Im looking forward to seeing the finished product.

This is the kind of thought and artwork that is missing from a modern album, it reminds me of the days of gatefold sleeves. When the physical album was something of worth as well as the music.

It's this kind of thing that makes people buy rather than steal music.

It's really exciting to see all the steps of this coming together. You don't think of all the little decisions that have to made down to how the cd jacket is folded. Awesome. And great concept.
