Commissions Jake Bugg

Early in 2016 Nathan was contacted to meet up with a mystery person who was a potential client for an album cover image. At first he had not spoken with the client, whom he only new to be an 'established male singer'. He later found out that he had been up against a wide range of artists both well known and starting out and that he had been chosen.

He also then found out that the client was Jake Bugg who wanted to commission three paintings, one for the album cover and others for various artwork unconnected to the album and tour. (Jake later decided to purchase an existing painting "Fields of Green 2" and commission two new paintings "I've Thought About It In A Few Different Ways" and "She Couldn't Help But Stare Out The Window".)

These three paintings are below.

"Fields of Green 2" was at first edited and manipulated to produce just a glimpse of the painting for use as artwork for the digital download for the "One My One" single and also "Live at Burberry Session" as well as the Nottingham homecoming show in June. Images here:

Nathan was later asked by Stylorouge, the Creative Directors and designers of the album and singles artwork and layout, to produce some colourful drawings in paint to act as teasers for the actual album. These were then digitally manipulated and used on the single cover for "Gimme the Love" and also the Limited Edition Album Set (images below).
