has been my favorite band for over approximately 4 years now, and so when the opportunity came up to do some music-related design, they immediately popped into my head. I created a fictional "best-of" CD, titled Can't Stop The Journey Now (which is also the name of one of their tracks).
I knew the first step I wanted to take was to paint something, since they have live painters at their shows and that's something incredibly unique that I wanted to emphasize. Different pieces of one large watercolor painting are used throughout the CD booklet, poster, and CD sleeve. I have always found Cloud Cult to be an incredibly uplifting band, so many of the colors were bright, and I also flipped the image in places so that the drips were rising, as spirits rise when they hear the music. However, they also have had their dark times and their rougher songs, so there are splotches of desaturation throughout, as well as darker blue towards the bottom.
This was an incredibly fun project, but here's the point where I have to say that it's not officially associated with Cloud Cult in any way, and is a student work.
