April 23, 2008

Here are some more of the ideas that my artist gave to me when I was planning the tour. Only one of them was chosen (the one with blue and white) but there was some kind of misunderstanding between the pdf file and the printing software so it omitted the blue color at all and […]

The artwork of The Dance Album

April 5, 2008

With this CD I was lucky enough to get Pelle and Mariliis from Sotapota to work on my CD’s artwork. It was obvious that the artwork had to be connected to the dance topic but it took some time to get the final idea that we used. First we started with a photo session and […]
