Rachel has put her passion for music and her desire to inspire children to produce an album filled with an array of fun and playful tracks. Her early childhood knowledge is strong and this comes through in what she creates without being a preacher. Each delightful song encourages dancing, twirling, jumping and singing while inspiring the imagination to run wild.
Rachel’s vision is to use music and imagery to nurture, inspire, transform and to make others feel happy, beautiful and free. The brief entailed creating a cover for the new album ‘Play’ that was relevant to the imagery of the songs and music and projected the message of Rachel Heart. She also wanted me to have fun creating the cover.. Be playful!
Developing a custom illustration enabled me to powerfully encapsulate and reflect a style of music that is modern with a slightly alternative/indie feel and illuminate the characters and concepts captured in the songs. A combination of inner and outer realities, the illustration draws elements from imagination and exploration which also represent subjects voiced in the lyrics – Castles, kings and queens, pirate ships and lions. Resulting in an album attractive to a young audience with a mature overtone that also appeals to parents.
The Album is available online and stocked in local Melbourne outlets with the most recent stockist being ‘Readings’ bookstore, Carlton.
