Sir Cosmatron Spacecat of all Destiny

  • It's been a few months since I did this, I just havent gotten around to uploading it before. If you have me on facebook you've seen the cover before, but without the fonts and graphics. This was an assignment for graphics class in my last school. First off we had to design a logo for a record company. Mine's called Wild Things inc. and you can see it on the right hand corner on the front (or bottom middle on the back).

    Next thing was to pick a genre (punk-cabaré) and an artist name, and since Chris had already given me the outmost awesome name in all of history (Sir Cosmatron Spacecat of all Destiny) I decided to go with that. After that there was an issue of a side-kick, where the obvious choise was my cat Blacko, cause he's been my side-kick since I was about twelve. Possibly Im his side-kick though. Its undecided.

    After that it was just a matter of deciding witch format to do the record in (LP, Single, CD), and I chose singlet, which is around 18x18 cm. The finished result is hours of hand drawing, scanning, taking photographs, finding fonts and merging everything together in Photoshop & Illustrator. Then printing it out and putting it on an existing single, with plastic cover, for the right feel.

    If you're wondering about the song titles:
    Ganymede is the largest of Jupiters moons.
    The Trifid Nebula is my favorite nebula.
    UB 313 Eris is the largest known dwarf planet in the Solar System, and resides in the Kuiper Belt (along with Pluto, amongst others).

    This is the finished result:

    This is what happens when you've tired of planning the layout. Cat attack.
