“Yesterday” by Daniel Pemberton, Himesh Patel

I‘m always creating covers, always busy with lots of projects and endless entries on my mental to-do-lists. So I’m definitely not lacking duties, or ideas for that matter. What I’m definitely lacking tho is discipline in publishing. It’s not rare that this blog lies idle for months without any new posts, even though I’m all of a dither behind the curtains, working on multiple things at the same time. More than once, I thought about giving up traditional blogging as you know it and just upload my custom covers on some online service instead (here or elsewhere). But somehow this…

“Who Framed Roger Rabbit” by Alan Silvestri

Just a quick insert for this 80s classic by Robert Zemeckis and Steven Spielberg. When I stumbled across Alan Silvestri’s album in my music library the other day, I noticed how dreadfully low-res the embedded cover artwork actually was. And to my absolute consternation I was not able to find a better looking version anywhere on the net. Intrada apparently publishes their official covers in a rather lousy resolution of 600×600 pixels only – a mid-level crime in today’s digital age if you ask me. Their Special Collection productions may receive the highest level of care and dedication, however when…

“Red Dead Redemption 2” by Woody Jackson, Daniel Lanois, Various Artists

After months and months working entirely on one single custom covers collection I’m finally done with Red Dead Redemption 2. Like every so often I didn’t plan to do an undertaking this big, but once things kick into gear there’s hardly anyone who’s going to stop me (obviously). But if there’s one single game in the last couple years that deserves this kind of dedication, it’s certainly RDR2. Rockstar Games have had hundreds of people developing this epic tale for seven years and you can see, hear and feel the results of these efforts in every single aspect of the…

“28 Days Later” & “28 Weeks Later” by John Murphy, Various Artists

It’s always the same… Right after I complete a gargantuan project, which keep me busy for weeks and sometimes even months, I feel spent and empty. But not very long. Quite early that feeling begins to shift into something else. Then I often times sit and skim through all my unfinished custom covers series and get all giddy and enthusiastic. Like a starving predator I roam my sprawling list of ongoing projects and look for that one single collection that is most likely fit for an early release. I guess I just love publishing stuff on this blog right here. It’s…

“Alien – The Inkjava Collection” by Jerry Goldsmith, James Horner, Elliot Goldenthal, John Frizzell

For today’s custom covers series I once again ventured back into my all-time favourite film universe: the dark and gritty realms of the Alien franchise. Although a slightly altered version of it… It’s not like I haven’t already spent enough hours of my life with these creatures, but I just can’t help it. The Xenomorph still amazes me in all of its various life forms. This whole fictional world exerts a strange fascination on me and I’m certainly not the only one, given the staggering wealth of fan-artwork that can be found on the web. One of those devoted fans is…
