POWER ELECTRONICS!!!!

So recently, a good friend of mine asked me to do the layout for his most recent limited edition CD. His project is called Slapping Purses. It's like, noisey electro stuff. Very gooood.
Anyway. He had some specific requirements. He wanted it to be a 4 color process print, and since the record is called "Diamonds Are Forever", he wanted there to be explicit liz taylor imagry.

I only included one image of liz, but did a bunch of very opulant colored pencil drawings that surround her. I'm experimenting with drawing in color (marker, acrilic pens, colored pencil etc.) and seeing how halftoning affects those marks.

It ended up being a lot of work doing the layout (thanks P!), and I haven't even started printing the bitch, but here's what we got.




Cover image: those are scanned in fleshtones from a gay porn mag. and also liz taylors face. I think she would approve.



Back Cover.



Inside Left: (it's a homemade digipak..without a tray) Really pleased with how the numbers turned out.


Inside Right: simple. mirrored from cover.

Now off to 1: test my new light table. 2. Print out the separations. 3. PRINT PRINT PRINT.
it's only a run of 200...so most of the work is actually done.

XOXO
DANIMAL

THEY DONE! I'll get a few copies from jason / aka slapping purses and I'll send you one. I think he was selling them for $8, so I'm sure $10 would be coool. either we could do the transaction, or you could just write him directly at "jasonpowerelectronics@gmail.com" and he'll send you one.

thanks greg! oh. p.s. we're coming to Philly in June! can you help with a show?
