Now that I'm getting the hang of this blog malarky here's a link to Rima's blog.
We found Rima by accident on myspace - hey, the modern world does have it's advantages - and we were immediately struck by her artwork. It has a fairytale quality, for sure, but a darkness too which means that it is never cheesy. I love the hints of medieval art and Eastern European folk art. In my book she's up there with the greats - Rackham, Dulac and Kit Williams - and immediately we sensed that she conveys through images some of the themes and moods that we try and convey through music. It's been a delight to work with her on the album and the website and we are already discussing future collaborations (about which I shall say no more for now).
And you know what? We're never actually met face to face! The modern world is truly bonkers.
