It turns out that Crescent Shield’s first CD, “The Last of My Kind” was quite a success and they’re now working on their second album. And again they want me to do the cover for it! Absolutely cool! Definitely, I said yes. Not only are they a really cool bunch of people, but I feel very nostalgic when I listen to their music. I like to listen to that stuff back when I was younger, and surprisingly, when I’m in the right mood, I still love listening and rocking to it.
I’m just waiting to hear the material on their new album, and hear what their general concept for it so I can begin thinking about how I’ll approach doing the cover. I’m very excited about this because I’ve since learned a few tricks with my art that I can apply to this new cover.
LA’s CRESCENT SHIELD is working on the follow-up for their great late-2006 release, The Last of My Kind. The new album will be released by Cruz Del Sur after summer 2008, but some details are beginning to be unveiled such as that the album will be entitled, The Stars of Never Seen, and Gerry Alanguilan (Marvel/DC), after the excellent result of his cover-illustration for The Last of My Kind, will be again responsible of the artwork.
