The Secret 7″ deadline has been and gone and I feel that it’s probably ok now to reveal my design entries!
I chose to make an ‘eye of the hurricane’ for the first track I illustrated, incorporating bluey-grey hues and some negative space that bleeds into the background. I was really happy with how the paper doilies acted as a stencil for the base of this design and the faint texture it’s created on the surface.
My other design which I’ve posted before has been changed to look a bit more contemporary and colourful. I opted for sickly sweet pink hues and a faded lace border/background to make the whole design really striking. I think it may be a bit too much, but I had so much fun making it!
