Very pleased to have designed and produced the artwork for The Selecter “Live In Britain” album out now on 12 inch vinyl and CD digipak. The 12 inch also has a designed inner sleeve of pictures taken from the “Made In Britain” tour.
It was also very good to use the brilliant photography of the Orginal John Coles. The association of both John and I with The Selecter goes right back to the early days on 2 Tone.
The difference then and now is technology and the leaps and bounds from traditional reeled film in cameras and mechanical lens shutters, and the pencil, brush and paint on draughtsmen parallel motion boards of artwork. Now John uses high end digital cameras and I use Photoshop, Quark Xpress and Adobe Illustrator on Apple Mac. Those traditional methods and the experience and knowledge count so much and are blended with the new technology to create our art … and The Selecter continue to create their art and produce the wonderful classic old and brilliant new songs of the present times…
