The stars aligned and the planets formed a perfect circle when illustrator Liam Klimek, Creative Director at Edifeye created this months cosmic soundcloud artwork. You may recognise his work from collaborations with Converse, Brownswood, Loose Synths and Eglo Records. Compared to the genre defining likes of artistic icons Keith Haring, Pau Sampera and Crispin Finn Liams signature aesthetic is playful, soft and pastel coloured. Check out his portfolio here.
