Pusher - Original soundtrack by Orbital

Artwork for the soundtrack to 2012 remake of 'Pusher' with film score by the British electronica band Orbital.

The poster for this film focused on very narcotic and futuristic neon cyan and magenta colours, something I chose to reflect in the score album artwork, using a blindingly fluorescence Pantone colour for the disc! Making the art (like the score) very acute and buzzing.

Music From The Batman Trilogy

Here is album artwork created for 'Music From The Batman Trilogy'. Much like the score compilation, I tried to reflect on the mood of all three of Nolan's Dark Knight films by representing the gloomy tones and gritty visuals associated with the trilogy.

The main imagery began as a study on towering glass structures and high rise angles, such as you would find in Gotham City. The emphasis being on the skyscraper windows casting reflections of bats swarming in a bleak cloudy sky, and also the aggressive nature of glass being cracked or smashed as a result of conflict and ruin.

The booklet has two alternate covers and unfolds to reveal a poster on one side.

Super Themes - album artwork

Super Themes is a compilation of super hero theme tunes covering a wide diversity of caped-crusaders from the big and small screen. From Adam West's Batman to The Dark Knight; Superman to Kick-Ass; X-Men to The Avengers… the music that lifts these characters out of comic book pages and onto our screens could be the real source of their super powers.

With the origins of these (sometimes) masked crime-fighters firmly in mind, I chose to focus the artwork for this album on the comic book strip, creating and illustrating a story about the power of one catchy theme tune. I also inadvertently turned an 'average Joe' into a superhuman when he is exposed to the music on this album, acquiring the ability to tear off the restraints of an ordinary working man's life and adorn the customary brightly coloured spandex suit and mask!
