Miles Davis to Design Second Album for Saturate

Massive Burn Studios will Paint Cover Art for “The Separation Effect”

It may come as no surprise that Massive Burn Studios is closely tapped in to rock music. From screaming faces and dramatically lit scenes, the artwork of Miles Davis is full of emotion, inspired, in part, by his love for hard rock music. While painting in the studio, you will rarely catch him without the music blaring. The ability to soak up the emotion from one element and then purge it onto the canvas is one of the things that makes art so ethereal, as if the music is sending a message through you, through the paint.

Thus, it is only natural that rock bands and musicians gravitate toward the style and art that Miles creates. Enter heavy rock outfit Saturate from Houston, Texas.

“We’ve known Jimmy, Mike, Hector, and the other members of Saturate for years now,” recalls Merissa, Art Director and Graphic Designer for Massive Burn Studios. “We first met the group as they were working on their second album ‘The Point of No Return.’ We developed the concept for this album after just a few phone conversations with Jimmy Miller, lead singer and co-founder of the band. After they approved the initial concept, we went straight into the full process. Miles illustrated and painted the cover art, while I designed and produced the layout for the booklet and cd itself. We are really proud of this album. It’s definitely a highlight of our portfolio and shows how well our talents merge.”
