Black Across the Sun
An attempt to capture the dislocated, otherworldly atmosphere of a total solar eclipse, when an eerie wind blows, the temperature drops, birds stop singing and there is complete darkness for two minutes. The design was developed from sketchbook work using circles and a coastal theme, and song words by Steven Wilson.
