As if it wasn't already in complete fan-girl heaven to work so closely with members of one of my favorite bands (Halou!) their current project, Stripmall Architecture, has brought the concept of album art to a whole other level. Thankfully our paths somehow crossed, and I had the privilege to be the lucky artist behind their album Feathersongs for Factory Girls.
The Mystery Parade worked his design magic on every release and transformed this project into something much larger, and with incredible fluidity and depth across the board. Max released a hardcover book chronicling the evolution of the project, Apoxalyptic Wonderland.
This book is a comprehensive overview of all the designs created for San Francisco band Stripmall Architecture's second album, "Feathersongs For Factory Girls". Centered around Dallas-based artist Jody Pham's key illustration, The Mystery Parade has created an astonishing amount of designs for one independently released album and its related releases, including singles, a DVD, two Japanese compilations, a lyric book, a poster set, and more.
