I really was happy when guille from sleazy records asked me to do the sleeve-design for this record release: CAVEMAN JAMBOREE from the U.S. band "the neanderthals". HA! it was so clear for me to paint a cavemen couple dancing in front of a Stone-Age record Player!
i just was unsure about the technique.
here is the final printed record sleeve, front sleeve, rear sleeve and Details:
first i did These sketches:
as soon as the concept was clear - i started to try out...
somehow i opted for cut-outs first - but then discarded it...
then i did the final drawing with brush and ink on paper:
but the bigger Problem was to find the right Color combination (as always!)
finally i stuck with this one...

finally it is out - the new Album of ROB HERON & THE TEA PAD ORCHESTRA! i was honored to do the design, and here we go: title is SOMETHING BLUE, referring to the well known wedding Quote. well, i guess you get the Point... here you see front sleeve, rear sleeve and Details of the finished product... i draw the whole Thing with brush and ink, the Details with fineliner. originally it was supposed to be a White cardboeard sleeve - it turned out to be brownish. i think if i knew that i would have given the blue Color a Little more intensity. but it works like this. I'm especially happy about the Little devil on the rear sleeve, sitting on his bertoia chair and Smoking a cigar!
