Links to Antonios work:
"When I was looking for inspiration for the album, I had the concept of trains rattling around in my head (not literally)..and I thought...why not call the album "ON TRACK" as this has multiple 'witty' double meanings plus it kept the train theme
My first notion was to have all the geographical locations that I had set the songs in, joined up by rail lines across the globe..,but some pieces simply did not fit neatly into that container.
Once I had settled on the trains concept, I now needed a fine graphic artist to help me bring it all alive on the web site.
I wrote to many known cover artists and sampled some of their portfolios, but once I got to Antonio I stopped, I believed that I had found our website artist.
I explained the theme and got back from him, this glorious train, on track, facing forward and passing by the places
in the songs, New York, Paris, China etc.
I also got some versions of a DAMANEK Band Logo to use on this site in promotion. I adoped the one that Dan, Marek & Sean & Iiked best. (It's at the top of the web pages and on our Facebook page etc).
I think that Antonio has created a very different look to our website artwork, away form the usual 'proggie' feel
His images are to be found on various pages on the site...look out for the train motifs!
They are great and I hope you will like them too!!!"
