Im truly thrilled to announce that a project that has been in progress for some time, is now finished and available to buy!
I was asked by John Cavanagh to create a cover image for a special vinyl album he created from music he was gifted by one of his favourite musicians - Lol Coxhill
Lol Coxhill and Raymond Macdonald recorded the improvised jazz music in Johns house and the tracks were then gifted to John.
He decided it would be a great idea to utilise the magic of crowdfunding and put the songs out on vinyl
John asked me to create the cover art for the album and I jumped at the chance
I was not familiar with the music or musicians but John gave a little guidance as to theme, and I created the linocut art that now graces the cover
I wanted to create something vivid and playful like the music and incorporated the frog and blackbird which are recurring themes in Lol Coxhill's music.
