Artwork For the New Album

due out: 12th of Never
Writing songs is hard, man. Then it isn't, and that's you get a whole boat load of them done at once. After that it gets hard again. Right now, I'd say I'm in the last third of that middle phase.

I've gotten an awful lot of writing done in the last 5 weeks or so, actually finished 2 songs completely and have mostly written another 3 or 4. Which is pretty much a record for me.

In any case, I've got the artwork nailed down. Sometimes it helps to draw a picture of the thing you're trying to do. I mocked this up about 4 weeks ago. Coincidence?

Making the album cover first definitely seems to have the effect of forcing me to solidify my conception of the songs.

No music to post, yet. I'm trying to stick to the "not posting it until it's done" resolution. So, I've got a bunch of songs written, but certainly not in anything like what will be the final form.

So anyhow ... whenever this is all done. That's gonna be the album cover.

Unless I change my mind.
