More at the jump!
Learn to Create Illustrations For a Band
Album sleeve artwork has always been a great medium for artists, designing visuals to work alongside music and appeal to the right people. It can be a collaborative gem, working with a band or musician to create a package full of sound and vision. This tutorial details the creation of the CD artwork for the album called "Making A Scene" from the New Jersey based electropop band "The Title."
To see more of my work check out BenTheIllustrator.com and Speakerdog.com, plus there’s BuyBenTheIllustrator.com to get hold of prints and posters! To hear music by "The Title," buy the album or read more about the band check out myspace.com/thetitlenj.
This is a High Quality Tutorial that Covers Making CD Album Artwork
I strongly recommend more artists approach bands to work together on album artwork, you can start anywhere, with your local DJs or young bands, or with the major record labels. Also, if you’re working with a band who are fresh, exciting and of the moment, then Adobe Illustrator is perfect to get creative with your design, illustrations, typography, icons, pretty much every element of the whole package! This tutorial covers the creation of the album CD cover in detail and also explains the creation of the rest of the CD booklet artwork as well.
