The river - digital single artwork

I designed the artwork for my (ex) band's single "The River". This song had a completely different style to what we usually did musically, so we wanted a very unique artwork for it. The lead singer wanted me to represent her idea of "Outer space in the river". I went to take pictures of a small river flow nearby the Bukak Mountain in Seoul and I transformed it into a digital paint. I wanted a small and very intimate riverside, similar to where my lead singer sat on her own one a gloomy night to compose the song and lyrics about 10 years ago. I wanted to visually recreate the intimacy, cold, darkness and gloominess of that night that led to all the emotions that reflects on the song. 

The artwork was featured in CA Magazine's Cover100.
