The chance to work with one of my favorite traditional ska and reggae groups, The Slackers, was a dream come true. The mission was to create 12” album art that felt classic yet contemporary and work around the focal point of the band’s classic late 90s era photos. Pick up a copy of this beautiful, future classic here.
Finding the right feel to match these Dub Reggae reworks from their 90s releases was tricky. I decided to build a textured and worn feel through acrylics and digital composition. Through an iterative process of demos, sketches and reworks we found a design that evoked something straight out of a 70s era Dub collector’s records.
