I've always loved Vic and I think this darker design will bring him kicking and screaming into the present. My hope is that these leather straps, nails and studs give an edgy slightly bondage feel and add to the exsisting character without deviating too much from the original image and spirit. By keeping the image as a simple head shot I have tried to creat maximun impact and focus on the character itself. I hope this would look cool on a cd as I think simple striking images tend to stand out better on the shelves of a record shop than more complicated compositons that may only work on close inspection. I have also mocked this up on a t-shirt (see other submissions) which I hope would make for cool merchandise. I'd love to do Vic in this guise complete with straight jacket and padded cell.
