We’re delighted to show you the Artwork for our new EP Limerence created by local artist Matt Williams.
We’ve always been passionate about working with up and coming local talent, with the artwork from our first release ‘Hybris’ being designed by bright star Sophi Wrightson.
To find our artist for Limerence we took a trip to the Art & Design department of Worcester University, We pitched to 30 degree level students from all sorts of disciplines about what we were looking for, and if they would be interested in submitting their own ideas. The Artwork needed to fit with our ethos, represent Limerence and fit in with the songs on the EP. Out of the many submissions we decided that Matt Williams had created our favoured piece. From then we spoke with Matt and refined the idea to create the Artwork that you see below
Here is what Artist Matt Williams had to say about the process of creating the Limerence Artwork
“The most important part of my process with Ronin is the music, listening to the music whilst working and trying to capture the essence of it through illustration. When i first met Kit it was inspiring to see how passionate he is about his music, I wanted to capture an earthy rawness with my images, I strive to make my work as human as possible. Although my personal work is mostly narrative, I enjoy working with musicians, and would love to keep working with bands as an illustrator. I think it is essential that people keep doing what they love.”
Here is one of the first drafts that Matt developed into the cover.
