Brennan: I smoked pot with Johnny Hopkins.
Brennan’s Mom: You don’t know anyone named Johnny Hopkins.
Brennan: It was Johnny Hopkins, and Sloan Kettering, and they were blazin’ that shit up everyday.

The fact is, we DO know a Jon Hopkins, and had the wonderful opportunity to work on the artwork for his amazing 2009 album, Insides and Light Through The Veins EP. Hopkins’ work focuses on melodic electronica, and when he approached Matt to work on this project, there was much drawing and dancing.
Below are some of the final artwork as well as process work.
Below is an animated exploration using shapes that we made as part of the experimentation process before we designed the cover.
