“Secrets of the Sea” was created for Loquats next great album. This illustration was completed February 2008 and took close to a month to complete. All the hands that you see are yours truly. The album will be released October 14th, 2008 on Talking House Records. I’ve been fortunate enough to design the last 2 albums as well. On a more personal note, the band and I share a friendship lasting over a decade and I’m hugely proud of there momentum and hard work. Get to them on Myspace and give a shout out or go see them live at the Treasure Island Music Festival, Saturday, Sept. 20th with TV on the Radio, Port Obrien, Goldfrapp, Justice, Morning Benders, Hot Chip, CSS, Amon Tobin, The Dodos, Nortec Collective and other cool bands. Mid October, Loquat will launch a Mid-West to East Coast tour.
