Love that the artist shared the process of creating this fantastic album cover.
It’s my second time to be commissioned to work on album cover. I’ve always wanted to do this. The first one happened around the same time last year for The Camerawalls.
This year, Japs Sergio asked me to make one and allowed me to do WHATEVER I WANT!!! Hahaha best job ever!
I’m no expert at this but I’m really thankful these musicians have trusted me enough to take a chance at this sort of thing. As much as possible I want it to be an actual photograph.
The environment above is from an ACTUAL PHOTO. Thank you to Gelo Lagasca of the Lowtechs for helping us out with layout and graphic design.
Check out the larger, square version of the cover design below and also how the photo was made.

Hoping to get this album later on my way home. Tangkilikin ang sariling atin. I love her voice!
let’s reblog this :) it will have been 2 years since we released Bipolar on the 27th of October. it took a while to get recognized but i think it was all worth the wait. my smile is as big as the crescent moon. thank you, life.
guess we could chalk up another validation. my old ears are still pretty accurate.
by Freddie Aguilar
Ang bayan kong Pilipinas
Lupain ng ginto’t bulaklak
Pag-ibig na sa kanyang palad
Nag-alay ng ganda’t dilag
At sa kanyang yumi at ganda
Dayuhan ay nahalina
Bayan ko, binihag ka
Nasadlak sa dusa
Ibon mang may layang lumipad
Kulungin mo at umiiyak
Bayan pa kayang sakdal dilag
Ang di magnais makaalpas
Pilipinas kong minumutya
Pugad ng luha ko’t dalita
Makita kang sakdal laya
the-best-local-music-video-of-the-mtv-generation:HULING EL BIMBO
Why it’s really good: In an interview on IBC’s MVTV in 1996, lead vocalist Ely Buendia explained that this would be the band’s very first video on film. With a big budget, high production value, and hired talents, the guys stated that, unlike the many performance-heavy clips produced in those days, “Ang Huling El Bimbo“ was the very first major Pinoy music video to ever incorporate a movie-like storyline.
“Ang Huling El Bimbo“ narrates the tragic tale of a man who was never able to express his love to a childhood sweetheart. Director Aureus Solito was able to find the right balance of images and narrative techniques that steered the video away from becoming too literal and too cheesy, shaping it into something that was memorable and locally avant-garde (in the ’90s). Dare we even say it? No other local music video has ever come close to the beauty and impact of Mr. Solito’s visual telling of this iconic Eraserheads song.
[totally agree. sino ba namang dna pa huling el bimbo.]
