Good Day (Better Day to Die) – Lyrics – Download
So I went through a company called “Discmasters” to have my album cover art done and I they did a great job. It was a little more tedious than I thought to get to the end product, but here’s how it went from having a couple photos to the finished cover.
Discmasters, “So can you send us a couple pictures so we can start drafting up ideas”?
Me: Hokay. Here you go. My girlfriend at the time took this of me playing in her apartment on Boyleston Street in Boston, MA.
and here’s my bandmates and I enjoying a sit on Mass Ave, Boston MA.
Me: Can you draw a skyline of Boston to integrate into the album artwork…..
The first set of album cover ideas came back like this:
Me: Can you guys add a little more texture to the photo of me and the guitar…oh yeah and my name is DYLAN not DAVID.
And here’s the first draft of using the skyline sketch….
Me: I think I like the photo of me and the guitar, can you guys do something else with that?
Me: can you change the font to something a little more streamline…and add a turquoise?
Ok, so now can we add the skyline to the photo somehow? and maybe mess with another font, just for fun? Oh yeah and my name is STILL not DAVID.
Awesome. I think this is it!
Isn’t it interesting to see how an idea morphs and evolves over time to become the finished product?
