Craig Frazier Studio (Underwater)
Hope you had a terrific summer and are ready to get some good work done! As many of you know, this is the blog designated as a resource for illustration at Seattle Pacific. This quarter is Digital Illustration, during which we dig into exactly what the boundaries are for communicating through and by the filter of ye olde computer. Straightforward approaches toward illustration will be wrangled, but we will also take experimental romps. Get ready get set!

In the meantime, check out this documentation of a design/illustration team working on an album cover for Son Lux:

The Made Shop's film documenting the creation of Son Lux's "We Are Rising" album artwork (CD and digital download available now, LP on 6/28).
"The plan is to do the entire record cover for the new Son Lux album in 28 hours, since he recorded the whole thing in 28 days. If all goes according to plan, we're going to shoot 28 smoke bombs going off in a parking lot behind some warehouses on top of a crane, and then cut out the Son Lux title out of the smoke."
