I Fight Dragons “Canon Eyes” Album Cover
Posted 2 weeks ago and submitted by Mr. Flama | Share link: http://illo.cc/85218





The band I Fight Dragons commissioned me with the illustration and design of the cover of their new album “Canon Eyes”. The brief for the album cover was to create an image that reflected and conveyed the idea of legacy, birth and rebirth that this new album’s songs talk about and reference.

The band approached me regarding one of my deconstructed figure illustrations, as they felt that this kind of imagery resonated with the ideas behind the album, so that was my starting point for the illustration. I suggested the Koi fish elements as they represent perseverance and transformation, and in some legends, Koi fish that swim many times against the stream of rivers turn into dragons, so I thought it was a perfect match for the concept of the album and also to tie it to the band’s name.

The child taking a peak from inside the female figure represents the inner child that lives inside us and that, in my personal point of view, is really important to reach when you want to reinvent and transform yourself.
