Just a quick reminder for the Danes! Tonight at 21.50 you can see Efterklang’s Performing Parades concert film on DR K. We did the stage design and costumes and make up and hats and the album cover and and and and…
Yesterday we went out to The Lab, a huge photo studio in Copenhagen, with Efterklang and photographer Rasmus Weng Carlsen, to shoot the next cover photo for a Danish music magazine. Here are some of our snapshots from the day.
We brought all the ribbons from the Magic Chairs album cover that we designed, and Efterklang brought a lot of bright, colorful clothes. Rasmus tried some different shots, but we don’t know which of them will make it to the cover… We’re hoping for ribbons!
Yesterday was also the release day of Efterklang’s new album Magic Chairs, so we celebrated with champagne!
Visit Rasmus Weng Karlsens site here.
The release of Magic Chairs is very near, and Efterklang are throwing a release party at Global in Copenhagen. Come by and celebrate with them, and with us! There will be live concerts with Frederik Teige, Peter & Heather Broderick and Slaraffenland!
February 18th at Global (near Skt. Hans Torv) from 20 – 01.
Gavin Lucas from Creative Review was kind to include our two latest album covers – Magic Chairs by Efterklang, and The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton by Clogs – in his CR Blog post “Record sleeves of the month”. Here you can also see some lovely cover design by Sawdust, Hendrik Weber, Nick Gill and Daley Walton. (Wonder if Daley is related to Lady Walton?)

We just finished an illustration for an article in the March issue of Danish Railways’ magazine Ud & Se, which is undoubtedly one of our favorite magazines in Denmark. The article is all about lying: big or small lies, white or black lies, how much we lie and when and why. It’s written by our friend and journalist Boline Skovly. Here’s a small preview!
Our web shop is up now! We have posters, prints, our collaboration with Anne Werner, a couple of T-shirts and a tote bag for sale… Go and have a look here
We have just added new work to our website, the artwork for Clogs newly released EP, Veil Waltz. Have a look here.
About a year ago we got an email from a famous English artist. He said he was moving to Denmark, and so he wanted to come round our studio to talk about illustration. We invited him over for a chat and a cup of tea and we thought it would be a one time thing, but the next day he was back! And the next day… and the day after that too! Before long he would come over unannounced at all times of the day, especially around afternoon cake time. We call him Kramer, but his real name is Jody Barton, and apart from being an amazing artist, he is really funny and charming. He quickly become a very dear friend of ours, but sadly he doesn’t come round quite as often as he used to, because he has found himself a studio of his own in Copenhagen. You might know his work from the cover artwork of Phoenix’s latest album, or from his weird and mad stories about Embryo Boy… Have a look at his work here
