Artwork and album layout for thrash metal outfit Waking Mayhem. The concept behind this artwork was inspired by the “mascots” of thrash metal bands such as Iron Maiden’s “Eddie” and Megadeath’s “Rattlehead.” The band wanted some sort of demonic being that they could use a motif on all their covers. The character concept I came up with was a mix between a deer skull and a human skull. I wanted to create something iconic, but still relate back to the sinister themes of traditional metal mascots. The rest of the artwork was built around that, with the post apocalyptic landscape and fleeing scavenger.
