Julian Klettenberg sent me this piece, describing how he created the artwork for the Refo:mation album.
In order to get into the right frame of mind, whenever I worked on the cover, I had an unmastered version of the album playing in the background. This seemed to work well, and it was quite a thrill when both Peter & Tim declared that I'd really captured the spirit of the music in the cover. Remember, that the Refo:mation album is NOT just The Church minus Marty - it's a very different sound altogether!
The idea of the combined faces for the front image was born almost out of necessity - the band left it entirely up to me to come up with a front cover image and all I had was a collection of head shots that would go into the booklet itself. The front image is the result of digitally layering the three (finished) individual images one on top of the other. The back image was then created by twisting the front image and boosting the colour saturation (this image was also going to appear on the CD itself, but we were limited by budget constraints).
Oh yeah, I definitely like what you've done with the Refo:mation page in Shadow Cabinet - keep up the excellent work! I'm also getting a lot of hits on my page (I'm sure it's thanks to the Shadow Cabinet link).
