The band Makten & Härligheten (Power & Glory) create instrumental music with political messages. They wanted me to create the cover for their album “på mindre än en minut” (in less than a minute).
Creating politic messages with instrumental music isn’t the easiest task. Politics are very much based on words, words and more words. I created an illustration that started as a riddle on the front of the cover (is it a pattern or does it mean something?) and ended as an even bigger riddle on the back of the cover (Why does the bear have four colors on the paws? Where is it going? Will it come back and attac me?).
Questioning and curiosity push us forward. And when we now what we want and where to go we can be strong as bears.
