Gospel Music

Here is my personal cd project I did about a year and a half ago. I have sold nearly two thousand cd's without any real marketing. Only selling to a few churches that are connected to my home church through it's various ministries.

The artwork came about by drawing over some pictures that I had taken of myself and scanning in those scraps . Then I built the design around those pieces, painting with various brushes and using textures to add design elements to portray the feeling I was after.

Overall it was a great and fun project. From the recording of the music and seeing all of the in's and out's of how a studio works. Adding in orchestration and background singers. To the design and layout. Experimenting with textures and brushes.

Thanks for the nice words. And yes it is good to meet a fellow Christian. Loved your 'ladybug in the mirror' piece by the way. Very nice work.

Hi David,

this is the first time that I have had a chance to poke around your blog. I was quite drawn to your cd cover. I really like the look/feel that you have achieved.
