Celestial Spirits by Mykola31 Celestial Spirits by Mykola31
Inspired by: Herbie Hancock, Coltrane, Miles Davis

So this is for a collab by me and `tedikuma we started a while ago.
Me and Ted share a passion for jazz, funk, Stones Throw records and other good music.. So naturally our collab was centered around music :D

I once noticed that Ted Taylor, `tedikuma's full name sounds just like a jazz musician's name. So we were joking around a bit and then we came up with this idea:

we make up our imaginary bands that would exist in the 70's, and do LP covers for each other's band.

Ted's band is supposed to be a jazz trio, performing slightly avant garde jazz.. think Miles Davis, or Herbie.
The cover for their album is what you see here :D

As for my band, it's supposed to be a full-on funk band, and Ted did an *awesome job* at capturing the funk and also playing around with the band name and album title (Pouring Rainbows - Sliding Down Candy Slopes :D).
Please go check it out right now [link] here.

We really had fun with this concept, and I really love how both covers came out! Hope y'all enjoy it, too.

I like the design very much! The contrast between the black, white and the warm colours ist really great. This piece inspired me to do a cover for John Coltrane for my arts class (we have to design LP-covers, both sides). Thanks! :)
