WAR OF WORDS - BADGER
Here's my entry for last week's word 'Badger'. Had the idea for a graphic symbol early on. The species has such a distinct look, the design came naturally. The application presented a few more problems, then the other day I received a copy of the new ORCHID CD 'HERETIC'. A clever design based on the old gatefold 12" singles (complete with replica 'vinyl look' disc). So, here is my design for the 'fictional' early 70's progressive rock band 'Badger'. This was to be their debut single, but in a bizarre twist of fate, the singer/guitarist Rodney Badgerbottom (from whom the band took their name) was run over on a country lane and killed.
Rumor has it that the master recordings for their debut album were recently uncovered in drummer Brian Rabidd's allotment and will be released through Rise Above early next year.
