Jermaine comments:

'There definitely is a feeling of grief and vulnerability radiating from this artwork, but also power and a dynamic amount of control. You can get roped into things, and go on for some time in circumstances that are manipulative, unhealthy, or just unhappy. There is the idea that, in a variety of ways, the option to 'disconnect' is always there for anyone to choose.'

- NINE INCH NAILS / SOUNDGARDEN Artistic Inspiration? -
(Jermaine speaks for a moment about the inspiration for the artwork on the recent NIN/Soundgarden prints)
 

      'I've been asked quite a bit recently (more than usual) about the process of coming up with ideas for the imagery on the NIN / Soundgarden pieces, so I thought I'd share a little. The unorthodox combination of these 2 bands sharing a stage night after night has intrigued a lot of folks. So, how do you do justice to both bands in a print? I'll say that it was a bit more of a challenge than usual. The juxtaposition of these 2 bands is interesting. It's a weird marriage for a prolonged tour. I think, for all parties involved, it took a tremendous amount of guts to attempt. Though the bands do share a fair amount of fans, you're dealing with 2 different demographics...in some ways wildly so. 
      
      This obviously affected the artistic direction I chose to move in for each piece. A successful print will showcase imagery that captures the vibe of the act(s) involved. Admittedly, this is a bit more cut-and-dry when dealing with a band like Soundgarden. They make amazing, straight ahead 'rock' music. The vibe lends itself to many types of textbook 'rock and roll' imagery. It's meat and potatoes stuff.

      NIN, at least for me, requires a bit more involvement. The typical rock and roll poster imagery just won't do. The music is 'rock', true enough. It can be very heavy and it can be very LOUD. But, it's very gentle in many ways, with a marked vulnerability. A significant amount of naked introspection is present in Reznor's lyrics, sometimes embarrassingly so, and it dictates a different type of imagery. The usual 'hard rock' poster cliches just won't do. I did my best to create images that contained a fair amount of vulnerability in them. The further wrinkle of 'electronics' pulsing through the fabric of NIN's music creates more complexity that sets them apart from the straight-ahead 'guitar rock band. They're in some weird category set off to the side. 

      It was a weird balance. A lot of what would be amazing for a Soundgarden print would totally not work for a NIN print, and vice versa. Hopefully what ended up falling out of me did justice to both bands. 
 
But, I've already said too much.' -jr
