Since the Astronaut Blood book sits in limbo, I've decided to put my energies into a new sister project for Austin, Texas band, The Lovely Sparrows. I've been working with them for a while now, and I'm basically in charge of their imagery. We've been talking back and forth for a bit on the topic of the new album and the music industry in general, and we've decided to take the apathetic market on head first by issuing a 2oo page book of art to accompany the album instead of the usual 4 panel booklet or more likely, nothing. I recently got back from Austin and shot 2o rolls of film on the band, surroundings, etc. and will eventually combine those with a plethora of brand new drawings and writings to form a complementary whole to both their full length album and my still unreleased 200 page book Enough Astronaut Blood To Last The Winter.
The completed first run book/albums will be available this October.
