Artist Dylan Green, a prominent member of the Ozma fan community whose artwork had been adopted by the band previously, was hired to create the album art. Said Green:
I ended up running with a "historical space travel" theme after having the idea to have Ozma in the style of 70's-era NASA wordmark, with little stamps, photos, and other ephemeral references and allusions to the band and their lyrics! I enjoyed adding digital aging and scanning in an assortment of hand-made and found elements to contribute to a sense of spontaneous realism in this piece.
I'm very proud of the final result, I think we've come up with a cohesive design theme and uniquely appealing aesthetic for this project as a whole, and I'm excited to show you all what's in store for the future. Thank you Daniel, Ryen, and Jose for the opportunity to work and collaborate with one of my favorite bands of all time!
