Mike Michel – On the Mend
I was asked to do this animated teaser for Mike Michel‘s new record, to tell the unusual story of how this album came to be. Mike suffered from tinnitus and hyperacusis, and had to remove himself from his passion for music for awhile, while he dealt with his physical and mental health.
In May, he hosted a sold-out record release show at the Icehouse in Minneapolis, and will be promoting the new album and songs.
I also did the illustration and design for the cover – not my usual illustration style, but Mike was thrilled with how it turned out.
Mike is a crazy-good, innovative guitar player, and his passion for the instrument and the music show in the CD, but especially in his live performance.
