Slime and Reason

You may recall I posted about Oscar & Ewan and their fantastic lasertype awhile back – well, Ewan just hit me up with a look at their latest work, the cover for the new Roots Manuva album, “Slime and Reason”. It is stunning.

I asked about the process and Ewan explained they actually had Roots Manuva 3D scanned (from every 45 degree angle) and then manipulated the 3D image to set the bowl in.
