Original Album Artwork:


Website that accompanied Album launch:


Set in a dark forest a person will be holding a bright obejct, their 'Everglow'. Holding this they will be trying to keep it hidden from peering eyes that hide within the forest. The image will be made up of dark tones with the glow really being the focus point.


Alexander Wells


I really like the illustration style of Alexander Wells piece above and would like to try incorporate lots of different components like Alex does to draw the viewer in and keep them looking for more within the piece.

Next step is to take it onto the computer. I may even redraw this up to finished quality as my computer drawing skills aren't so great! Hopefully I haven't biten off more than I can chew!
