'Springles' an album by Tall Tales and the Silver Lining, was originally released as four digital EP's, in respect to the four seasons. Each season was illustrated by four separate artists: Evan apRoberts, Seth Pettersen/Sasha Green, Jason Bays and Kyle Field. My initial inspiration for the layout was the simplicity of how record design primarily from the 60's. I remember looking at the block type for Burt Bacharach's 'Reach Out' and the warm wood grain on Dillard and Clark's 'Through the Morning Through the Night'. At first I looked at the four artworks together on a stark white background, but they all seemed to resist existing together in stark minimalism. Instead, I decided to print the artworks in a uniform size and photograph them on a wood surface. This layering of texture unified these very diverse artworks into one larger image.
