Default Album art

so here's the deal


I've been working on this chiptune album for about two years now. It's my only original full length since july 2012, and I can safely say I have everything I need to finally get this shit out.


problem is, I lack presentable art for this. I have no idea where to look to commission someone for album art, nor do I know the standards of quality for this. I know more or less what I'm looking for, but I know 0 about graphic design.

Could anyone refer some artists? Maybe like a DA page of sorts or whatever. I want something exceptionally nice. Been waiting long enough for this, I'd like to put some money into talent.

I can warn you in advance that abstract, pixel and other digital media artists aren't too big on comissions, or at the very least taking them on da. Your best bet is to send a note to one of your favourite artists that's still active and hope they have a website for that sort of thing.

Send me a PM. I've been itching to make something, that I can probably lean towards what you're looking for. Don't have to go too into detail-- I won't go for it unless I really do feel I can represent the concept well, that's what you want~ I think hearing some stuff would be all I would need to really sink into what the aesthetic would sum up the experience to be.

I have strong understanding of communication design and high technical skill. I love working with music artists and it's one of my goals to work on album art or gig merch someday.

My work is colorful and highly illustrative, check some of it out here. http://www.flashflashrevolution.com/...d.php?t=137334

These are stream-of-consciousness sketches but I'll post em because it relates to music (I like to visualize music based on the structure of the sounds) http://thespenner.deviantart.com/gallery/27176337


Though really the style is totally dependent on what would suit the album best. If an idea sparks that I think is solid, I'd be happy to share it; if I have a massive creative block after hearing the music, regardless of whether or not you like what I make, it prolly won't be so solid. Should link some tunes
