A couple months ago I got an email from the sweet-as-heck Hey Violet team asking to make some cover art for their incredible new EP, "Brand New Moves" (you can, and should, give the title track a listen here. The video is amazing too!), and I obviously said yes! Since, I've also created a show poster and a couple more visuals for them-- I'm totally obsessed with their style and so stoked to be working with a band in this capacity.
The H.V. camp was kind enough to let me shoot some live photos of their killer set in Atlanta on their current tour with 5 Seconds of Summer and they were excelllllent! They're such a fun live band. When I initially went to edit these I sort of freaked out and went like, FULL THROTTLE MAXIMALISM, with a bunch of papers and adjustment layers....which was a mistake. I asked my mom why they sucked so much and she deadpanned and was like, "because you're trying too hard." And so I paired down and only went a little wild, and I'm really happy with the way they turned out! Moral of the story is: yeah, I guess less can be more, but only sometimes.
