PEPPER

LYRIC BOOK & VINYL PACKAGING

When asked to create a lyric book of my choosing, the first song that came to my mind was the classic hit "Pepper" by the Butthole Surfers. A popular hit in the late 90s, "Pepper" is a song about foolishness and recklessness and bad luck caused by 10 unfortunate people. Straying away from an entirely morbid visual adaptation of the song - I took a different approach in creating visuals for the lyrics. Taking inspiration from the band's Rock N' Roll history, I made individual "show flyers" based around each verse' incident. Dark humor is everywhere in this piece.

LOGOS & COPY

I wanted to be hands-on in every aspect of making this book + vinyl package, even down to the logos. I came up with a quick n' dirty logo for the band, but also made a mark for the bar "Texas" I featured in every one of the show flyers. As far as the copy goes, I wrote every individual fictional obituary which were all based on people mentioned in the lyrics.
