Gone Is Gone
I was commissioned in late 2015 / early 2016 to produce a number of images based upon my Dream Away series to help launch the branding of the new music group Gone is Gone. The band consists of Troy Sanders, the singer and bass player from Mastodon, Troy Van Leeuwen, one of the guitarists for Queens of the Stone Age, Tony Hajjar, the drummer for At the Drive-In, and Mike Zarin. They wanted visuals that matched the force behind the music. This is a collection of the delivered images which can be found on their EP, and in the video for Violescent.
To meet the needs of packaging design and public consumption, the images were retouched and digitally painted to add hair to ensure certain specifics were covered, resulting in purely figurative studies for their presentation.
