I'm looking for an album cover for my new CD.
The album will be called 'Keep Fishin" the subject of the drawing will be a scene from the title track.
If you'd like to get a feel of the song, check out the link below:
It has a old school jazz standard type of feel. The idea of the song is that I'm the fisherman and the love of my life is the fish. However, no matter how much I keep fishin, I never seem to find her.
So! For the image itself I'm looking for a guy on a boat, fishing. I would like him to be wearing the hat that I'm wearing in my videos! Here's the big catch though. At the end of my line, in the water I would like to have my heart.
So I'm fishing using my heart as bait.
Sunset would be good. I'm not against cartoony (to a degree)...
The catch is: This sounds really lame on paper, and that's because it is. I believe I found the right spot for the song where it's not cheesy, corny, or lame - it's endearing. I'm hoping for the cover of the album to be the same way.
Also, I will probably want another drawing for t-shirts, maybe a different logo, etc. I hope that through this I can find an artist that I really enjoy and someone who would be willing to work on other projects.
Thank you for checking this out - if you'd like to do a sketch and have me comment on it - or anything I can do to help make your job easier - let me know.
Finally, there will be a layout over the drawing. This is how my new website and branding will look like. I don't mind moving around certain things (and or resizing) but somewhere on the album cover there needs to be room for the wording (comfortably - this is a relaxed song and no need to over-think it and cram it all in there).
