For this project, the band Hjaltalín approached me with an idea to design the cover for their debut album, Sleepdrunk Seasons, using artwork by the renowned icelandic floral painter Eggert Pétursson.

The project was challenging because of its limitations but gave me pleasure in working with Mr.Pétursson's beautiful palette. I used only one painting for the entire album artwork, using the painter's great span of scale - going from the large picture to the detail, the vastness of the colour to the single flower using a predetermined process of manual scaling.

My design used concentric circles to frame the painting in varying scale.
