GESCHA's Crayon Politics
I'm so excited about how this project turned out! I was approached by Matt Senga on behalf of Gescha to create the cover art for his new album "Crayon Politics". This is Gescha's first solo album and I'm so honored they chose my work.
For more info about Gescha go here:
We wanted to make something simple that would be eye-catching as well. We went with his name spelled out sitting on chess pieces. I'm a big fan of the rainbow!
G - sits on the king
E - sits on the pawn
S - sits on the rook
C - sits on the bishop
H - sits on the queen
A - sits on the knight

The black & white image is artist, Christian Faur's work. He stacks crayons to make an image, each crayon acts like a pixel.
I just wanted to give a great big THANKS to Matt and Geordie! I hope you guys are as thrilled as I am about this. Good luck with the new release! We'll have to grab some beers if I'm ever in Saskatoon Saskatchewan ;)
Check out his lead single "Love Pirate"!
