Not always do you get to do work you love. Less often do you get to do designs for actual vinyl. Even less often for dear friends. And even less often is it for a seminal album that meant the band in question (Even As We Speak) were asked to do Peel Sessions off the back of it in the 90s.
And then, just sometimes, you get to do all four, when they ask you to design the sleeve for the 25th-anniversary re-issue. Now that is special.
The image is of a Thylacine, also known as a Tasmanian tiger, the now-extinct Australian dog.
The sleeve is printed in only two colours: black and Pantone Rubine Red, and this image shows the limited edition splatter vinyl, with standard black vinyl below.
Album available through the lovely chaps at Emotional Response.
