Orion Artwork Unveiled
The ArchuWorld got a squee-worthy tweet from the Man himself when David unveiled the artwork for his Orion EP. A bold, graphic depiction of the constellation Orion, the Hunter, drawn by Johannes Hevelius and featured in Uranographia in 1960 (source: Wikimedia Commons)

Fans responded on David’s twitter timeline in droves!
Response was overwhelmingly positive! This EP cover-art is a bit of a departure from David’s previous album covers, which typically feature a high def photo of David – front & center! And we usually get a series of awesome pics from the album cover photo shoot.
Like his music and his career, David seems to be forging a new path of his own choosing – can’t wait to see how this is reflected in his new music and on the Orion Tour!

Orion The Hunter
A quick google search of Orion brought up lots graphics/photos:
Fan discussion turned to hopes for new merch featuring the new artwork – tees, sweatshirts and hoodies topped the list – so we hope Team Archie is listening, because they need to create the new merch and stock up for the concerts! Miss Bianca suggested we could make the merch ourselves!
Then we started wondering if the artwork had a copyright… another quick google search and we were pleasantly surprised to find that the image David chose for his artwork is actually in the public domain! So hopefully there’ll be lots of new merch at the concerts!
Here’a an idea for merch!
