Take a look at the Artwork for my Album....

Gday all... Been on Jemsite for a while, but havent shared the artwork from my Album..

I did all the Artwork myself... and loved making it, as well as writing the music...

Its very jemsite oriented and thought id share it...

Disregard the Yellow outside lines, its just for the printers template

The right side is the front cover (its a digipak)




And here is the CD itself

Its great in a busy way! If you are looking for any criticisms I'd say change the font of the album title!

Any links to any of the songs on the net?

Re: Take a look at the Artwork for my Album....

Sorry but it's too photoshoped to my tastes.
It looks like a kid discovering photoshop.
Sorry custom24 but that font is the only thing I liked.
It reminds me japanese font or something.
Hey japanese fonts would be awesome.
The cd art is cool but I don't like the colors choice.
Anyway the whole thing looks like Hey I needed to put everything there so.....I did it LOL
Sorry mate but it's out of my tastes.
I'd rather prefer only a pic of you and your guitar in a REAL cool place as background.
Music speaks for itself so you don't need a carnival of colors to get attention.
But hey that's your cd and your tastes so.......6Fingers get the hell outta here lol

Re: Take a look at the Artwork for my Album....

Well I guess if you heard the music, you would understand the cover.
Its psy trance, 80's pop, 80's metal, hip hop, house, dance and the use of 5.1 surround sound movie/tv samples all mixed into one genre... It's not a typical album.. Its experiemental,

Obviously you dont enjoy the cool side of the pillow. Cause I do, I love it when I flip the pillow over and its nice and cool.. oh and a bit of humour flows through the album... Cause music should never be taken seriously.... ever !!


Your more then welcome to have your opinions, and thanks for sharing.

Note to Jemsite members, PM me with your postal address and I will send you a free copy, I run a business online and its not a big deal for me to ship copies out for free (I can afford it )

I never made the album to sell, or become famous, its just an exercise in creativity, and communicate it to others.

Even you 6fingers, just send me your details and I will send you a copy...

Cheers !!

Re: Take a look at the Artwork for my Album....

I completely agree to you MUSIC should never be taken seriously.
Some people don't like me because I have a huge sense of humour and some people can't stand sense of humour.
It's ok I can't ask them to change themselves the same they can't ask it to me.But they think they have the right of trying to change other people.

Even If I had listen to your music and understood the meaning of your cover still I won't like the color scheme.
Well anyway man nothing against you or your art cover ,it's just out of my tates but it means nothing cause it's yours and if it's in the way you wanted,CHEERS.
I learned something a long time ago=when you post something there will be always people who like it,hate it and don't care at all.
I'm pretty sure there'll be others who have the same taste of you.
Please don't take it as a rude or bashing .You asked and I just told you my taste.
I'd love to receive your cd no matter what color it has but I'm too far away.
Anyway thanks for EVEN me.

Re: Take a look at the Artwork for my Album....

I like the CD

But yellow is a pretty bad colour for text. In fact, anything apart from white on black or black on anything light usually looks pretty terrible and cheap.

The cool side of a pillow is the best, no doubt.

And Also a pretty wicked album name. I don't think the artwork is that bad. I kinda like it.

I created it, its what I had in my mind, and i perfectly transfered what was in my mind to paper... and I was satisfied

So your not just calling my artwork horrible, your calling my mind horrible..

A real artist would have critiqued in a more productive way. If you really were "a semi graphic designer type" you would have known better and had more compassion for your critique.

Your allowed to hate it, but your also allowed to be nice and tell me you hated it in more choice words... But i'm sure your happy with yourself, did calling it horrible, make you feel good. I hope so, otherwise nothing good came of your comments...

6fingers just send me your postal address and i will send it to you free. Nothing to worry about distance...

Completely agreed.We all can say our tastes cause that's what a forum is.But say it in a nice way.Come'n leave your angry outside of your posts. I said it's out of my tastes but I'd never say it's horrible cause.......well if you want respect,give respect.
Believe me I made a joke but I really didn't like his post.
But we're adults(not him) so let's get over it before others start complaining too and a mod close your thread.

Are you sure about it?
Why spending money with someone so far way?
I can picture myself talking to my friends=look this,a guy from Australia where I always wanted to dive sent me his cd.Isn't that cool?
Of course it's cause he's on the other side of the world.
Music united us.
Hmmm it sounded gey..........sorry lol
What about a trade?
You send yours and I send mine?
It'd be cool but you probably have already listened to my songs here.

Re: Take a look at the Artwork for my Album....

Nothing so far has been said, to make mods close this thread..

I was brave enough to share my Art, and be prepared for negative remarks, and I feel I have a right to defend myself, if unfairly attacked.. Its all part of the Art process..

I make art/music, because of how I feel inside. If someone doesn't like it , I could care less. The most important part was that I enjoyed making it, and I felt good after completing it. If he reckons that by telling me its horrible, that its going to take away from the good feelings I had making it, then he is delusional...
