'Oak Leaf' by Raoul Vignal
art direction - illustration - layout design
This artwork was crafted for the second album of the french songwriter from the Talitres Records roster.
The idea for the illustrations came out from a poster I created for the 2017 Raoul's concert in Rome.
The singer felt a deep connection with the mysterious, surreal and melancholic portrait of him that I made, so we expanded the same concept, towards an even more surrealist vein, and imagining a female character appearing in the visual narration The original portrait returns in the inner sleeve, in a slightly modified version.
The result was two portraits suspended amongst dreamy lands of thoughtful clouds and winged desires, uncertain waters, wise, sorrowful barks and rugged soils.
