Sleeping Robot Album Cover

  • Album Cover for Sleeping Robot
  • This album cover is a combination of sculpture and digital illustration. We cast the artists hand in alginate and used several bottles of resin to encase the armature, lighting and wiring. 
  • The hand needed a couple of weeks to completely cure and then we photographed it from several different angles with muultiple lighting arrangements to get the best possible representation of the casting.
  • The hand was photographed from several different angles with multiple lighting arrangements to get the best possible representation of the casting.
  • The background is constructed of a night-time star photograph and some images of an island that I took. The island was then manipulated to look more like a digitized sound wave, and general image clean up was applied.
  • The recommendation for the record/album was to use orange transparent vinyl to match the lighting effects in the hand.
  • The album labels use the pattern of the reflected light in the water for both the A and B sides. The typography mimics the   text on the front and back of the jacket.
