This one went out as a gift for a happy couple from the Southwest this month. They wanted a reading from the ceremony added onto the bottom, works well I think 🍃🌱🌺 (at www.pip-designs.co.uk)

First track from the Duets album is streaming on AV Club

The record is up for preorder TODAY through Iron Pier

It’s rather dope. 

Many of you will consider this your favorite Self Defense record, while others will hate it a lot. In that respect, it’s like all our records. But, there is one very important difference: With two vocalists, you have more options on who to blame for your strong feelings. 

Glad I was involved in this great record. All artwork by yours truly x

QuestionCouple of questions - The image of flowers used for the cover of Rain, did you use a flatbed scanner? The recent Self Defense Family cover, what part of the image was manipulated digitally? Did you actually make the the 3D skeleton cut out and was it with a laser cutter? Answer

Hey

The artwork for ‘Rain’ was a pretty simple technique indeed, I used a flat bed and a couple of lamps to get the lighting as I wanted it. The challenge was in the composition of the piece, getting the arrangement of the flowers and the deer perfect took quite some time. 

For the Self Defense Family ‘Duets’ cover I used a ‘piece together’ wooden skeleton toy set which was bought from a toyshop near my house, I then photographed it in natural light, cut each piece out in Photoshop then digitally adjusted the shadows and patterns as I wanted.

Cheers
