I have many talented Rec'ers as friends.  Some are musicians, producers, remixers and some do graphics and drawings.

In my case I needed to have an album cover made.  I love vinyl albums and the apparent lost art of colorful cover art.  I am a huge fan of the Smashing Pumpkins album "Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness".  That cover has everything I love...stars..moons, and the color purple.

So being that sometimes I put on a vinyl and lay on my back and look at glow stars in my room...I wanted that theme.  When I am creative, I tend to sit in that room and daydream song ideas under the glowing black light stars so the title had to denote that as well.

I do not draw, but I scratched down on paper a rough idea of what I wanted.

I thought about who I knew that could draw and I thought of Sarah Lynn.  I approached her about it and sent her my ideas and she sent me back the following.  As you can see I also started to refine the title and it changed over time to its final.

Next we discussed color.  I definitely had purple in mind.  She sent me the following:

I liked all the colors but I am partial to purple.  The next pic I received I call ... "The Pixar".  It appears she moved to a computer and this is the next update:

I ok'd the colors and was given the final:

I felt a darker wall would make the room appear more dark and realistic.  This is now the final.

I am hopeful I can press a vinyl version and see how the cover looks in glorious vinyl album cover size.


We are now talking about the back cover.  I actually don't know what to do yet so here is the initial...initial...initial initial...idea.. a template of sorts.   A place for track listing, production credits, songwriting credits etc.
