Matthew Dear - Beams
The Beams project has been the most ambitious music packaging project that I have worked on to date. It started in November of 2011 and ended in May of 2012. The full scope involves almost 100 paintings, two of the paintings being 20 feet long, flying to NYC to be filmed painting a 6 foot portrait, another porttrait that took 2 months to paint, a custom typeface, and countless designs. There will be four singles to come off this record as well, each requiring new pieces as well.
