LV - Don't Judge sleeve

This has been long time coming but here's some work in progress shots of the LV 'Don't Judge' sleeve and label sticker for 2nd Drop Records.  I illustrated it a while ago but for various reasons I only finished screen-printing them (a run of 500) last night - it's been exhausting but rewarding none-the-less.  To be fair I'm not quite Aaron Horkey famous so it's not like a screen-printed sleeve is going to sway the dubstep record buying public one way or another but I'm very happy with the finished result and 2nd Drop have made a point of supporting decent artists for all of their releases.  Mark of 2nd Drop is a thoroughly decent fella too so big up to him and to everyone involved - it's been a pleasure and I'm going to take this opportunity to apologize to Mark and their graphic designer Ralph for being a fussy bugger. 

Further apologies for the shit photos - my official photographer fucked off to California...  

Colour matching (ahem.... 80 odd limited edition aqua sleeves anyone?)
Fizzy cherry cola bottles - essential screen-printing equipment.
The blue was spot on when spread over the screen.  Not sure what happened...

Fizzy cola bottles and beer. I'm glad you're still keeping it real!
