This is the front cover for the soon to be released Subhumans LP/CD. I drew/cut/assembled a rough version that the band and I decided to stick with, as it had a spontaneity a more labored drawing might lack. Mind you, I did spend some time applying textured edges (scanned torn paper) to much of it, including vocalist Dick's hand-written title.
It's a straight-forward and bold image. At first we considered illustrating the numerous "causes" of the internal riot in or between the splinters, but really, that's where the lyrics come in.
Originally I felt it could be grey (followers of this blog - both of you - groan and mutter, "Now, there's a surprise") as below, but the band preferred it in black and white, and I concede that it sits better with their other record covers now. As does the album itself. As a long-time fanatic I can say it doesn't disapoint! Now if I can somehow work on a Conflict, Neurosis, Extreme Noise Terror or Beyoncé cover I can retire happy...It's also going on t-shirts for their forthcoming US tour, so if you're in the States go see 'em.
