the other day the new album by chuck prophet "temple beautiful" was released. i did all the art and package design for it. it's not really a concept album, but it's all about san francisco and the varieties of life and experience found within it. it was a really fun project to work on. i made a collage and did some inky business with it and it came out pretty cool. lots of little bits in there for the san franciscophile to pick out and chomp on.
here's an npr review of the album.
i did a bunch of drawings of characters and places from the songs... they are sprinkled throughout the booklet and inner-sleeve that accompany the cd and lp versions, respectively.
he's currently doing some bus tours of sf for the album. rad idea, really.
even made a tour shirt to go with it.
chuck is a really nice dude and he does this stuff because he loves it and means it. you can't really ask for much more than that.
