Tim Easley : Modified Man

Design

Commissioned | Professional

Why did you make this work:
To hand sculpt an illustration and design a record cover based around circuit boards, to be used across a set of 4 vinyl releases for the band Modified Man. The brief was intentionally loose to give me creative freedom to make something a little different, while still representing the electronic music of the band. I decided to build this piece out of plasticine to give it a man made feel.

How was the illustration used:
On record sleeves for 4 separate vinyl releases, and digital releases across various platforms including Spotify.

How did you make this work:
Hand sculpting this piece, it took around 80 hours to complete the 50cm x 50cm artwork. The idea was to show how a future civilisation would perceive and recreate circuit boards if they didn't know what they were for, with stylised representations of the separate components. I then photographed the piece for the record sleeves, and also designed the cover and rear of the release.
