World Spirituality Classics 2: The Time For Peace Is Now: Gospel Music About Us

September 2019

As with many of Luaka Bop's extensive projects, this album cover and packaging began in earnest over a year ago. This cover was inspired by another cover, and is all hand drawn by me. I drew the lettering and the borders, and the figure. I printed all of the textures included throughout from an empty piece of linoleum onto printer paper, using an empty wine bottle as a roller. This project was especially rewarding as during the development of The Time For Peace Is Now we discovered more and more people, images and stories, and each discovery felt a bit like finding buried treasure. The music is phenomenal too :)
