In WINTERSLEEP news… Welcome to the Night Sky was released in Europe this week on 147 Records with our Hand Drawn Dracula artwork!
Hand Drawn Dracula filled a page of the National Post with photos, artwork and interviews. Read all about HDD in the article: ‘ABLE LABELS : Who would start a music imprint now? Only the passionate‘ by Mike Doherty.
“The label’s logo is a child-like sketch of a fanged creature’s head, but Mejia’s artwork, printed on “130-lb, double-thick, antique-stock” paper with hand-crafted packaging, is clinically precise and – crucial for branding purposes – undoubtedly recognizable. Borcherdt aspires to making HDD worthy of “a section in somebody’s CD shelf that’s not alphabetized like anything else: It sits alone because it’s aesthetically pleasing and has a certain feel, like something they’re excited to have.” – National Post
