Rusika Life Long Journey Contest!

A Collaboration with American indies jrock band Rusika!

Rusika wishes for YOU to design an album jacket for their new EP!
(This EP was worked on with engineers credited to Greenday and Ozzy Osbourne).

The theme of the EP conflicts of young people in modern society: feelings of inequality, deteriorating or repressed culture, concern about people’s desire for money over justice, and similar concepts.

Basically, being a young person worried about how they will handle the future when previous generations have been greedy and selfish. The narrator of the songs who would rather use their frustration to create something artistic and productive, rather than remain angry and pessimistic.
Rusika would like the art work to reflect the feelings of loneliness and chaos, as well as hope and love.
