local natives album

7

The very last part of my senior projects from last semester to share with you all: 

I decided to create an illustrated album packaging for a fictional double-album release from the Local Natives. The album art for both Gorilla Manor and Hummingbird have been re-imagined and combined into one with the use of a Turkish paper-folding technique.

The album packaging also features original hand-lettering and illustrated record sleeves and labels.

My top albums of the year!
1. If You Leave- Daughter
2. Repave- Volcano Choir
3. Trouble Will Find Me- The National
4. Hummingbird- Local Natives
5. Modern Vampires of the City- Vampire Weekend
6. Birthdays- Keaton Henson

Each album helped me through situations throughout the year, especially If You Leave. People always leave, whether it be through death or choice, and it’s hard to except that in then end, we’re alone. This album captures how I feel in every way, and that’s why it’s so special to me.

I could talk about any of these albums for hours to be honest, but instead I’ll leave it at this: music heals. It’s the only thing in my life that’s permanent. It’s what I can always turn to when nobody is there for me.
