My take on the album cover for Modest Mouse’s “We Were Dead Before the Ship Even Sank” was inspired by the lyrics and concept of the album as well as stop motion animation. I wanted to capture the feeling that this is the depiction of the first steps on an epic journey where the result can only be death. I used several textures and shadows to give that depth to the image.
