Painting the Inner Space Traveler

”Just make something cool” was very gracious. But easier said than done at first. ”What are they into?” ”What reflects them?”. I went through a bunch of ideas and sketches, all of which i really liked, but which one as the right one for them?

Painting Machacha's ”Tigerblod” album cover

I want to take you a bit behind the scenes of my art.
In the summer of 2016 i painted the album cover for danish rap artist Machacha.

The album has a heavy, dusty 90's hip hop sounding style. The lyrics are rough with a lot of absurd and violent but funny wordplay and imagery. Cartoon violence! With a loooot of references to gorillas.

I wanted to get that across in my art for the album cover.
