Secret Heart

For the third drawing project, which is the last one for this semester, we were asked to pick a song and design a CD album cover inspired by it. The artwork and concept should reflect the theme of the music and ethos of the band. I picked one of my all time favorite singer, (Leslie) Feist, with her remakes of Ron Sexsmith's "Secret Heart" as the chosen song.

I did a minimalist, delicate and sort of surreal approach to reflect her such arrangement for this song. I come up with this lifted female character with pink flower head and with her palms on the chest; to represent the girl on the song that secretly hides her feelings. Flowers meant to represent this delicate blossom feelings she's dying to reveal.

Anyway, try to listen to her beautiful arrangement for this song and at the same time, look at the drawings on this CD cover, maybe it will make more sense ;-)
