She Drew The Gun Art Direction

Music Industry

Project Overview

After appearances at Glastonbury and the success of her first album, Louisa Roach of She Drew The Gun approached me to art direct her second album, Revolution Of Mind.

I felt that an image was needed that represented the activist attitude present in the songs and lyrics, driven by a feminist, non-binary politic, informed by the art of Judy Chicago.

The album cover depicts an androgynous subject, daubed with song lyrics using motor oil, in a pose traditionally used for spray tanning, symbolising the connections between capitalist control of gender, the environment and patriarchal beauty standards.

A font was developed from the finger-painted body texts for use throughout the packaging.
