Maltese band Relikc approached me to create artwork for their debut album The Code of Antics. The inspiration for the album came from their varied styles of songs, each with their own character but making sense as a whole.
To translate the code visually, I decided to create a code with hand gestures where each song has a hand gesture corresponding to it.
Each hand gesture was modelled on a photograph of my hand, then sketched by hand using pencil. The illustrations were then scanned and cleaned up digitally.
After completing the lyric booklet, the band introduced some hand-drawn sketches themselves.
The artwork was accompanied with vibrant photography by the talented Kris Micallef.
