CROSSWORD RECORDS

Invited to do the artwork for Crossword Records’ latest album, “Readings”, I was thrilled with the opportunity to work with a musical outfit I’d enjoyed since their debut album. The art-direction took lead from the dream like and simultaneously nightmarish imagery conjured in the lyrics. The illustrations are both intricate and throwaway, which felt appropriate in context of the opening tracks: sounding like childlike fantasies playing off disturbing premonitions. The album comes with a fold-out poster (shown left) full of lyrical references and even portraits of members of the group.
