Dead Hot Sun CD
Digi-pack tri-fold cover and CD
This CD packaging is a cardboard fold-over tri-fold with a interior pocket to hold the CD. The design was inspired by the dark melancholy that the music and lyrics portrayed.

The illustrations started as images taken from ruined hotels in Mexico, performers at a solstice celebration and various other photos from my past. I converted them to halftones and layered them over each other in various colors. All the typography was done by hand.
