Billelis had the pleasure of working on the cover for The Glitch Mob's upcoming album See Without Eyes.
The Glitch Mob, an electronic music group from LA, had a vision for their album cover which involved having their own faces in 3D.
Billelis brought this idea to life by using 3D scans of each band member's face and turning those images into 3D sculptures.
The end result is a captivating album artwork which depicts the band's image as futuristic sculptures colliding down the cover.
Immortalising the band forever.

Ozzy Osbourne, widely and fondly known as "The Prince of Darkness" is an iconic British rock star.
Starting his career back in the 1970s as the frontman to metal band Black Sabbath, Ozzy went on to release 11 solo studio albums, achieving critical acclaim and becoming a household name all around the world.

The beautifully intricate artwork was displayed on magazine stands up and down the country, as well as being shown on giant screens at the "home of rock" Download Music Festival.
Billelis created this black matte heart and gold floral concept for Canadian DJ Apashe.

Billelis has created a series of medical illustrations for the pharmaceutical industry.
The subject matters include many aspects of anatomy and physiology including a heart, kidneys and the brain.
Through 3D art, illustrations of the body can be given more depth and detail. The key visuals in this project specifically show brain neuron activity, microscopic virus, blood cell flow and polytheistic kidneys.
Anatomical projects lend themselves well to 3D work and as such this is something Billelis' will be exploring further in 2019.

Billelis worked with UK metalcore band Bury Tomorrow on their fifth studio album, Black Flame.
The album was released on 13th July 2018 to critical acclaim.
Billelis created iconic branding for the band, which included the clearly identifiable five-pronged dark flame.
The visual identity was used across a number of mediums, including CD artwork, vinyl, merchandise (pictured) and stage visuals.
The latter was used throughout festival season 2018 and will be used in their upcoming, and widely anticipated, tour in 2019.
This project contains a steampunk inspired key visual exploration for the watch-maker and jewellery sector.
Billelis has created imagery which shows the inner workings of industry in juxtaposition with the inner workings of nature, and thus the concept of the 'Robo Beetle' was coined.
Bliss n Eso are an Australian Hip Hop band based in Sydney.
The trio approached Billelis to create the artwork for their album, 'Off The Grid'.
Featuring a hooded angel holding a gold skull, the artistic album cover is interesting and eye-catching.
The trio of intricately decorated skulls, also created by Billelis, was featured in the sleeve notes of the album.
The key visuals were used for the album cover (for both the CD and vinyl), for social media campaigns and featured in merchandise such as clothing and skateboards.
Excitingly, the artwork was also displayed on a huge mural (as shown in the pictures to the right) which showed, on a grand scale, the great depth and detail in Billelis' piece.
Pictured are a selection of album and EP covers from Billelis' long-standing collaboration with dubstep artist Apashe.
Billelis had the pleasure of working with Apashe on a series of EP covers for Soundcloud and Spotify alongside social media content and stage visuals.

More covers from this collection are to be exclusively published as they are announced.
