Bert Jansch - Blackbirds of Brittany 7"

Earth Recordings

To follow on from the earlier release of Avocet, Earth commissioned me create the artwork for the Record Store Day release of Bert Janch's Black Birds of Brittany. 

The track talks about the effects on bird species after the 1978 Amoco Cadiz oil spill off the coast of Brittany. Many bird species were effected by the spill including the Gannet which has a large population on the Seven Island Nature Reserve, Brittany.

The artwork was created to continue the conversation of the track onto the front cover and highlight the devastation but also the hope of specie recovery after the disaster.

Released on Record Store Day 16.04.16
