‘Toska Fall’ is a punk rock band from Enschede which I was asked by to come up with a cover illustration for their self titled debut album.
Toska – noun /ˈtō-skə/ – sadness, melancholia, lugubriousness.
The illustration shows the portret of a man facing the dawning of the sun. Half of his face is covered by shadow and the other half is being lit by the sun. The obscured part of the man’s face is in terror, looks ill and suffers from parasites whereas the sunlit part is happy and euphoric, without any sign of disease.
