CHAPEL OF DISEASE fans or just interested people !
We will show you all seven illustrations which you can find in the CD and LP booklet of the upcoming C.O.D. album „The Mysterious Ways Of Repetitive Art“ in weekly intervals. Seven artworks for seven songs, or better let's call them rituals. All artworks are created by Chris of Misanthropic Art. An outstanding, international acting artist. He and the band's guitarist Laurent wrote down their thoughts about each illustration.
So, let's start today with #1 „The Mysterious Ways...“
Chris (Misanthropic Art) about the illustration #1 „The Mysterious Ways...“
„I decided to draw all booklet illustration in black and white and used the secondary cover image color for the highlights. I wanted a somewhat old school feeling to the illustrations which is also why i used hatching as drawing technique. For me it's a cross between detailed and simplistic work which works not only for this illustration but also for the rest. the challenging part of the first title was to fade from a almost perfect world into a dark, hostile environment. Since this song is a instrumental i had two pages instead of one which makes this the only landscape format illustration but I think the format helps especially in this image to elucidate the miners walk from home into a dark night into a unknown future. I tried to make this transition more dramatic by using the deaths head and clouds to switch from daylight into night and also him reaching out to the miner.“
Laurent (Chapel Of Disease) said about it:
„As we see the nameless man walking towards a beginning, death divides what’s not to divide, since its end marks a new start…“
