KMFDM: WTF? album artwork

For the latest KMFDM release, band leader Sascha Konietsko and I came up with this enticing but dangerous femme fatale within whose tempting assets destruction awaits.

Coincidentally, I had been musing on the way women’s faces, lit from beneath by the light from their mobile phones,  resemble those Renaissance paintings of  Madonnas  and the placement of the sparkling fuse in the artwork adequately conveys this flushed, angelic look (even though its source is threatening).

Several alternative colour combinations were suggested before agreement was made on the featured green and yellow.

KMFDM Krank – new band artwork

I was asked by Sascha Konietsko of KMFDM to come up with a band illustration for their new album, Krank. Using several photos of the band onstage from their last tour, I spent a couple of weeks sketching the various members before building the scene in 3D and lighting it accordingly.

I then inked the individual characters before scanning them in and finishing off in Illustrator.

Vectorised ‘A Drug Against War’ artwork

Every once in a while, I get the opportunity to re-render one of my old illustrations.

A Drug Against War was one of my first sleeves for KMFDM and when I asked the band for a high-res copy of the sleeve, they were  only able to supply me with a heavily-pixellated version. So, using Illustrator, I painstakingly reproduced the artwork with clean and minimalist vectors, keeping as close as possible to the original.

I am offering this beautiful A0 canvas print for the special price of 560 euros.
