Gentle as one can be

Here are a few quick homemade shots from the hip of a CD cover I've recently done for a band called 'A Gentle Conversation'. It was, as always, the most pleasant thing to work with musicians. It always allows for quite a lot of artistic freedom and the Gentlemen in question are rather pleasant company, as the name suggests. I might try to get some better pics done soon.
It is quite a shame that so few full-size vinyl records are done today (or, at least, I don't get to design them too often) as the format of a CD, nice as it is, is just a bit small. Still, several pages of room for drawing is nothing to compain about.

Mother and Children

I am very intrigued by classical motives. They are easily recognisable and therefore allow for a lot of freedom because you already know what you are looking at. An image of something well known doesn't need much explanation. That painterly freedom is something very inspiring to me. So today I thought I'd go with the Madonna and the Child. Twice!
The first one is called "Black Forest Madonna" ("Muttergottes Schwarzwälder Kirsch").

The second one is simply called Mother and Child.
