I have decided to design CD covers for my brother Tom because he is a musician. His music can be heard here: http://soundcloud.com/compact-monster.
To start with, I asked Tom which three songs he wanted me to design for and the meanings of each, he chose:
‘Dreams Won’t Find Me’
Wishing that dreams come true, but they never do.
(not currently available on the web)
This song is about people who are stuck in a rut, and have no self worth by constantly trying to impress others.
(this song is under another name on the Tom’s website- ‘Pull The Trigger’
This song is about someone who wont take the blame, who is always in the way and tripping people up, making life difficult.
I then asked Tom his three favourite art movements from the following seven:
Renaissance, Impressionism, Cubism, Pop Art, Minimalism, Modernism and Post- Modernism.
He chose Pop Art, Surrealism and Cubism.
