Artmagic - Debut EP Sleeve Design

I’m absolutely over the moon to announce that my sleeve art and design for ‘I Keep on Walking’, the debut EP by Artmagic, will be launched tonight (May 18th) at a special gig at Brixton Windmill.

Artmagic is a collaboration between Suede lead guitarist Richard Oakes and Sean McGhee, a prolific engineer, producer and writer who has worked with, amongst others, Britney Spears, Alanis Morrissette and Imogen Heap. This pairing of pop and indie might sound unusual, but it’s undoubtedly a match made in heaven. Richard was responsible for co-writing some of the most insanely catchy top ten hooks of the 90s (‘Beautiful Ones’, ‘Trash’ and others) while Sean has long hankered after a more personal outlet for his songwriting themes. The meeting place between their different career backgrounds turns out to be a set of four thematically linked, melancholy yet melodic tunes – offering a taster of the delights promised by their debut album, coming later this year.

The EP is sold in a very limited edition – available on general release from next Monday but ready to pre-order as a physical copy from the Artmagic website here.
