JOHNNY THE FOX ALBUM COVER
I had the artwork finished without a title waiting to hear from Philip while the record company were screaming for the artwork. With only a few days left before the release date Philip rang me and gave me the title. ‘Eh, Philip, There’s no such title on the track list…’ I volunteered, pointing out the obvious.
‘No one will notice, Jim, the album will be massive.’ He said. He was right. It was and no one ever said a word.
I thought I had better put the fox in after they rejected the ideas of a cut-out with the foxes head showing through. Echoes of the ‘Nightlife’ panther are here too but we always felt the central image reflected the idea of the ‘outsider’ -something that appealed to both of us.
The original design had the neo-Celtic metallic border with a warrior figure in the center. Philip just loved the border and was determined to use so I got the go-ahead to proceed to final artwork. It took ages but it was worth it. He wanted something very Irish and Celtic without any twee ‘diddley-oi’ connotations. There is just enough Celtic knotwork in there to do the trick while the rest of the border is sheer madness. I enjoyed every moment of it’s creation!
