An album cover for my EP release coming out this Fall.
The music genre is soft rock with an '80s vibe (along the lines of The Cars, Bryan Adams, Asia, etc.). I use primarily piano, drums, and guitar when recording my music. The name Different Moon must appear on the cover along with the album name which is Desert Rain.
The graphic should illustrate a unique view of desert scenery and rain, but much more complex than just rain coming down upon a desert. And the illustration doesn't have to just be desert and rain, feel free to be creative. I like that desert rain is an oxymoron and would like to depict an image that is unique and different while still staying true to the words. As a reference, I have always liked the rock group Asia's album covers. On the 99Designs website, I like the Mikkjal winning design.
I like the idea of an evening setting with the moon's light shining down, but it doesn't have to be this image if you have another creative idea.
Update (10/3) - another thought crossed my mind with the idea of the moon's light shining down upon part of the desert. Perhaps the rain would only be shown in the moon's light. Just an idea if going down this path, but my decision will be based on a design that is unique, creative and cool looking.
