Album cover illustration for the French band Jours Pâles and their upcoming "Tensions" release. I wanted to make something atypical of the genre that still would resonate well with the music of the album. The result is in a way a throwback to the mixed media aesthetic that I used a lot in the early 2000's; elements from different sources are fused together to create a coherent whole. The artwork features handmade drawings and photography as well as more modern AI/glitch effects. It all ended up being pretty experimental and indeed with a lot of "tension".
