Lagoon is getting ready to release our 3rd self-released album. Here’s a sneak preview of the art. The name of the album is Gemini.
The concept is duality of self.
Here I have depicted a midnight meeting of a hare and a fox, each representing contrasting aspects of human nature. The black bars across the animals eyes is meant to convey a couple of things. First, traditionally this is a method of concealing ones identity, even though clearly we can see that the fox ix a fox and the hare is a hare. (So, no matter how we disguise our true selves, others can still see who we are) Secondly, it implies that both the fox and the hare cannot see each other. (This is a bit more esoteric, but basically, this could be interpreted as either acceptance or denial, i.e. looking past our collective flaws.)
Much aligned with many of the lyrics of the record, the art is a visual narrative of the struggle between what we are, how we see ourselves, how others see us and how we think others see us.
Hello. David here.
As if we didn’t give enough praise to jF, here is another Seafoam for you. Please use responsibly.
This time Seafoam is on the prowl, hooking up the following (in no particular order): cougars with delicious young prey, peanut butter with jelly, Ernie with Bert, genitals with genitals, gin with tonic, sadists with masochists, lonely business men with alley ways and tea party members with low hanging sweaty nut sacks.
So put on your running shoes and we hope they’re tied on tight! HAPPY VALENTINES HAPPY HAPPY VALENTINES HAPPY VALENTINES DaaaaAAAAAy!
And you thought Santa Seafoam wasn’t coming! The big question is, have you been naughty? Or Nice? Either way Seafoam will probably just eat you.
As always, thanks to jF.
Lagoon would just like to give a shout out to our friends and fans celebrating Chanukah. Seafoam says, “Shalom!”
Check out the art section and add Seafoam to your iPhone.
New Seafoam! This time our little mascot is hungry and waiting for tofurkey. That’s right Seafoam is a vegetarian. Learn more about how to adopt a turkey (instead of roasting one) here.
Hello Lagoon Art Lovers.
So I designed a new poster for our next Boston show [Friday, November 6 at Copperfield's next to Fenway]. I wanted to do something a little different, so I pulled out the art supplies and decided to illustrate a rabbit… (foreshadowing for things to come).
I wanted to incorporate natural layers of paper and hand drawn type… unfortunately I couldn’t get the conté crayon to hold… a fellow designer and myself were just discussing how no designer likes their own handwriting. I don’t know. Anyway… thought you might enjoy a snapshot I took during the process.
The poster can be downloaded here: art
