Today we are going to learn how to make banana artwork.
We all know that there is a lot of original, unique, and exciting music out there. A lot of it is good. But how do you get people to notice your band? How do you get them to listen? You make the artwork “pop” in such a way that they can’t ignore it.
So lets begin by talking about what makes your artwork stand out from the crowd. What makes people want to pay attention? The answer is simple – something new. Something different from what everyone else is doing. I am sure you have noticed how much art out there is just a slight variation on another band’s design. It’s boring and uninspiring. No one wants to be like everyone else so how do you go about this? The answer is pretty simple – be different!
Create something different for your band. Make sure that if someone looks at your album art they think “oh wow, this band must be something special because of their art.” If you are going to get noticed it has to be visually apparent on your album art that this is unique and original work. No one wants to hear or see the same thing over and over again no matter how good it might be. So
Banana Art, Banana Art, Banana Art. The first thing you need to know is that every band needs artwork. It doesn’t matter if you’re a solo act or an eight piece band, no one will ever care about your music until they’ve seen your name in print, and preferably on a CD cover.
Be bold and daring. You may be surprised what you get away with.
The main thing you need to do is to break out of the usual conventions of your genre or category in a way that grabs attention. This doesn’t mean you have to do something as drastic as put a man on the moon on your album cover, but it’s OK if you do.
Let me tell you about a little-known band I played in called Scaphe: they had a space theme and their artwork reflected this. On their debut album, there was an astronaut floating in space with a banana around his neck. It was funny, it was different and it looked great!
I think we did this because we were so sick of seeing the same old pictures of rock bands on vinyl records, T-shirts and posters. I remember when No Doubt came out with their first album, I couldn’t believe how dull the artwork was: they were standing around in some warehouse wearing jeans and T-shirts! We wanted to be different from everyone else and our cover showed this.*
*The cover also showed that we had no idea what we were doing! Sometimes good art can just be bad art done well enough to look good. However, if your art looks bad then people
The earlier you start taking yourself seriously as an artist, the better.
The odds of succeeding are 50:50; the question is whether you want to be a lottery winner or not. If you are willing to put in the hard work and effort, then there is no easier way than starting your band with great artwork.
Treat art as something you have to do and not something you want to do.
It will get done when you make it a habit, rather than thinking about it as some sort of fun activity that is dependent on your whims and feelings. It doesn’t matter if you don’t feel like doing it or if you don’t feel inspired at the time, just get in the habit of drawing something every day and posting it online. If you think of it like this then it won’t be such a chore and you will find yourself getting better quicker than if you hope that inspiration strikes at a particular time.
Don’t let your music define how good your art is, let your art define how good your music is.
Just because someone has bad music doesn’t mean that they have bad artwork and vice versa. You can be the best musician in the world and still have terrible artwork. Good artwork isn’t just for people who
Art is important to any band. It is the visual representation of your music, so it should be great.
Band artwork can make or break a band. It tells the audience what they will get from your music and helps them decide whether they want to buy your music or listen to it for free on Spotify or Youtube.
With so much work involved in creating good artwork, there are many resources out there to help you learn how to design better artworks.
The key is to be unique and stand out from the crowd. You don’t want your artwork to be similar to other bands’ because then people might confuse your band with another band who has a similar style of art. Which may not be a bad thing, but if you want people to remember your band, then you have to do something that will stand out from all the others.
I know that every band thinks their artwork is amazing, but how many of you actually have a professional opinion on your art? How do you know if it looks good in print? Does it work as a thumbnail or does it have to be full size? You need to get feedback from people other than your band members.
I’m not an artist, so I don’t pretend to be able to critique artist’s work. What I can do is give you advice on how to approach getting art made and printed. My advice comes from over 20 years experience running my own screen-printing business and working with dozens of bands.
We all know that music is a powerful thing. Music can bring people together and can also help people to relax. It can also make us feel happy or even sad. And when we listen to our favorite songs, it is as if we are actually living in the moment of the song and nothing else matters.
Truly, music is a powerful thing!
But how does music influence us? How does music affect our feelings, thoughts and behavior? These questions may sound stupid but they are really important because if we want to be successful in a particular field, it is very important that we understand how our environment influences us. For example, if you are an aspiring singer-songwriter, you need to understand how music influences your feelings and behavior so that you would be able to market yourself to the public more effectively. And if you want the public to buy your songs, you need to package them in such a way that they will become irresistible so that people will buy your songs and listen to them over and over again!
What do I mean by irresistible? I mean songs that will have great artwork and packaging so that people who see them will be willing to buy them without even hearing the songs. This means, of course, that they have already heard your name and
