We are a rock and roll band from Sydney Australia. Like Motorhead/ACDC, but female fronted
Rock band Drop Tank need artwork for their new EP "Vice"
We have some kind of idea of what we want it to look like, but there is still a lot of room available for creativity. These CDs will be sent to many cool places and people - and we will include your name on it if its really good.
To get a feel for the band please check out our new songs here;
Please note these songs have not been mastered so they are on a secret myspace page. The name hotboxmotherfucker has nothing to do with the band.
15-35 year olds
1. FRONT COVER
This is the most important part. We want some kind of cartoon car involved. It must be in some kind of action, ie crashing, speeding, speeding at the viewer, tilting, the more demonic/crazy/fun looking the better. (Think Mad Max or perhaps something futuristic even) The cover will need our band name (Drop Tank) and the EP name (Vice) on it.
If anyone has any alternate ideas which still suit the theme, ie car, machinery, vice we welcome those too. It doesnt nececarily have to be cartoon. The MAIN SONGS to take inspiration from are Medicine and Drop Tank. All lyrics for all songs can be found under "lyrics" on http://www.myspace.com/hotboxmotherfucker
THE COVER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART, so please put most of y our energy into that.
2. CD artwork ( to be printed on the disc). How about a beat up hubcab (ie the disc looks like a beat up hub cap) it can be dented, scratced, something off a muscle car. It would be great if the back ground artwork under the disc (ie in the cover under the disc) could be the part of the wheel that the hub cab fits into. (ie take off the disc and there is the wheel without the hubcap underneath)
3. Inside page (next to disc when folded closed) will be a pic of the band and band member names, plus thank yous. We will put the image and info up later in the competition, if available. (If not we will need you to help us out later if not done in time) All you will need to do is fit the image and space the info.
4. Back cover. The artwork could continue from the artwork in the front cover. You could also use ideas from the lyrics from other songs, but its up to you if you want to just stick with the car/mechanical theme. Lyrics will also be on the myspace.
Track listing 1. Murder 2. Medicine 3. Drop Tank 4. She's A Bookie 5. Juliette . Instead of using numbers, you could use symbols as bullet points - ie little knives or medical flasks.
* Who evers artwork we choose - IMPORTANT - WE WILL NEED TO WORK WITH YOU AFTER THE COMPETITION IF ANY LITTLE CHANGES ARE NEEDED. - For example, changing Song name order, or altering cover artwork (only slightly) if we want to release it as a single. We also need to use the artwork for our myspace and promotion of EP so different forms of your artwork will be needed ie myspace banner, using the logo that you have created etc. You dont need to sort out our myspace, we would just need your artwork in illustrator format.
Any questions, please ask: Droptankband@gmail.com
I will be checking 99Designs everyday. Good luck and thanks!!
