The music album that I am creating consists of dub reggae style remixes of some tracks by the pioneering Gypsy Jazz swing band of the 1930s, Hot Club de Paris.
The album will be called "Hot Dub de France" by Kieran Gilchrist. I would like to have this on the album front.
You can see I like to play with words and I would also like the overall design and font to be playful, colourful and vibrant - perhaps in a jazzy or dubby font. I'd like the colours of the Rasta/Reggae flag (red ,green and yellow) to be included.
I would like the graphic design of the album to be a mix of imagery to match the mix of the Dub and Gypsy Jazz genres. I've uploaded a picture of a mobile sound system van. As Django grew up in a caravan it would be great for him to be playing guitar outside his mobile dub sound system caravan.
The iconic figure of Django Reinhardt should be the focus. I imagine him to be transformed into a rastafarian with dreads, smoking and playing my archtop jazz guitar (pic attached) with his trademark moustache and finger position (owing to an injury to his hand and fingers). Maybe he could even be sitting on a swing (get it? swing jazz haha).
Any ideas you have which can embellish the theme, play with words and imagery and make people giggle are most welcome. Let your creative juices flow.
Please see the attachments. I would like to use the picture of my guitar also. You can use it or create a cartoon image of it.
As a reference, I like the cartoon-style album covers by Mad Professor (google image search "Mad Professor album"), especially his Samba Dub Experience album cover (see attached image).
I would like to have the images in a kind of media pack format with different sizes for web, print etc and access to the font so I could create the track info/supplementary material at a later date.
