WIRES + LIGHTS ALBUM ARTWORK

I have a long history now of designing Album covers and promotions for musicians, and this latest feat was such a joy. When Wires & Lights asked me to take part in this, I considered it an honour.

So excited to announce that now I've got Greeting Cards and Postcards in the shop.  I used to love to collect these growing up. When you're broke and you can't exactly collect art or prints, cards were how you got your fix. To now produce them makes me so happy, and it is a great way to collect and share the work. If you'd like to see any particular work not currently made into a Greeting / Post card printed up, let me know! I'd like to know which ones you are interested in, and can print them in the...
