Freshly inspired and injected with creative energy from the SCBWI Mid-Winter Conference in NYC, I return to the most urgent task at hand—artwork for the cover of the nifty 7″ vinyl record that will accompany the special limited edition pre-order package of Sing Me to Sleep – Indie Lullabies. The project has officially been leaked to the indie music media, and we have received some early blurbs from Pitchfork, CHARTattack, TwentyFourBit, top-40charts.com, Avopolis Music Network and wearsthetrousers.com. We leaked a free download of Dean & Britta’s track, “Making Me Smile” to Muruch and there is already a fan video on YouTube.
That made me smile. :’)
When the 7″ art is complete I’ll move on to the CD cover art, continue planning release parties in May, and recruit some of my favorite fellow illustrators to create poster art for individual songs from the album. My plan is to have the posters available for sale at the release parties and online, and then, gathered printed in an anthology of lullabies in picture book format. Sound cool or what?
