The Si Claros - Scottie Pippen E.P.

Brief

The Si Claros are a surf/pop/rock band from Newcastle, Australia. 

They are great. They decided to form a duo when they spent a year travelling South America together.

Vincent sings in Spanish on most of the tracks.

Their music deals with themes such as love, loss, violence, death and NBA Jam.

Inspiration

I have known these guys for years and was looking for a fun project so decided to tie this class in with designing their next CD cover. I love their South American influence and the chance it gives me to play with images of Mexican wrestlers and Day of the Dead skulls!

Being such an eclectic act with a blender like approach to pop culture gives me loads of imagery to play with.

My concept is simply to create a striking image that pays homage to disposable pop culture and South American culture. 

Check the pinterest page I have been puting together to get an idea of where I am headed.

Concepts

Below are some of my intitial sketches. I started with the classic wrestler masks. It felt a bit boring so I tried some Day of the Dead inspired skulls. For some reason the floral motifs on the skulls reminded me of Carmen Miranda and her ridiculous fruity headpieces. I have worked up a few ideas based around this. Still early days and I will refine the treatment in the next week. Would really like to use a limited colour palette and some nice thick black line work. Just need to find the time to get the idea right.

Look forward to hearing your thoughts.

Cheers,

Owen
