In the beginning of 2010, we completed the album cover for Clogs' 5th album The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton. We started developing the illustrations for the artwork already in December 2008, so it was a long process for us, but also became the beginning of a new way of working with illustration.
The album included a collection of new songs composed by Padma Newsome during his 2005 residency at Giardini La Mortella, a rich botanical paradise created by Lady Walton on the island of Ischia off the Bay of Naples, Italy. Our imagery was an attempt at visualizing how we imagined the garden, in accordance to the music. Many of the creatures and plants in the imagery are inspired by Padma's lyrics.
