Tom Waits | Bone Machine

CONCEPTUAL ALBUM COVER

When presented with the challenge of reimagining an album cover, I chose Tom Waits' early 1990's album, Bone Machine.

I paired an image of a dynamic splint with a sourced botanical illustration of wild strawberries. My hope was to strike a balance between, darkness, beauty and the peculiar. The arist page gives a little backstory on how the album came to be and offers a glimpse into his creative process.

Below, my thumbnail sketches will offer you a glimpse into my creative process.
