Album Covers (A Pandemic Series)


For me, this collection of work represents progress and evolution while—at the same time—who I’ve always been and what I’ve always done. Created in the initial months of the COVID-19 pandemic and culled from nearly 50 cover designs, these 30 selections represent conceptual art for albums that do not yet exist. This was an exercise completed under unparalleled circumstances to keep my creative and artistic senses sharp during a period when, understandably so, client-driven work disappeared. A time when the silence was deafening and I sought relief within the creative process.


The 30 pieces represent a virtual gallery exhibit of non-commercial album covers. They were not made to fill a determined space, nor were they guided by already existing factors such as style, genre, gender, or locale. They were created without compromise and are free from the confines of pre-conceived notions and subjective criticism that commercial art commonly endures.


The images contained in these designs are either my photography or public domain works of art. They were the driving force behind the work and I believe the images, graphics, composition, and typography (when applied) lend a visual aesthetic that can find its home in musical genres as diverse as indie rock and Americana to industrial, metal, and ambient.
