We were commissioned by Shure UK to create a custom SM58 wired microphone incorporating artwork by Berlin based artist Daniel Harms http://daniel-harms.com/index.html
"Harms’ trademark is showcased through his colorful aesthetic which depicts characters in scenarios coinciding with time and space. Daniel creates art evolving around the themes of alienation and connection".
The piece we chose was from his "Falsche Helden oder mutige Irre“ series http://www.daniel-harms.com/publications.html as you can see its very detailed and intricate and not an easy task to replicate onto a microphone, but we like a challenge!
Here is a quick video showing the process and completed mic;
