'Life Fantastic' Man Man w/ Artist Brad Kahlhamer | ALBUM ARTWORK
Life Fantastic, the new album by experimental band, Man Man dropped this week. I had the pleasure of working with artist Brad Kahlhamer on the album artwork, compiling his sculptures, drawings, paintings and scribbles into a bizarro scheme to fit with Man Man's wacky sonic vision.
The CD has a triptych of Kahlhamer's dolls on the exterior foldout and a more elaborate interior foldout composition, with his sculptures set against a scene of watercolors and script. Both the CD and LP versions include a poster, complete with liner notes and added scribblings. Brad's killer artwork was a genius choice for the band. Check it (click below to enlarge foldouts):
