'New Beat Generation' Album Cover
This is an album cover I worked on for musician Chance Utter, for his upcoming album, 'New Beat Generation' and single from the album, 'Beat Mosaic.' Chance's music is percussion based, combining Tabla, Bata and Pandeiro compositions played over electronic backtracks. This album was heavily influenced by traditional Hindustani classical music and Carthatic music, combined with inspiration from Beatnik writing, especially Jack Kerouac's 'Dharma Bums.'
For the cover illustration we decided to base the piece off a traditional Ganesha depiction, but with a more contemporary feel. The illustrations is done in colored pencil and then colored digitally in Photoshop. I created two versions of the illustration, a red and a blue, for the album and the single. I also designed a logo for Chance that we used on the CD and also for some merchandise like stickers.
Here's a link to the stickers and t-shirts we have available.
