Holly's next record
Early last year I did a record cover for my friend
's first record. Somehow I never got around to blogging it, but she's
now, ending today (January 5th), in fact, so maybe now is as good a time as any. Aside from Holly being one of my favorite people on the planet, I have an interest in the fundraising, because I'm slated to do the cover of the second go round as well. Here's an image of the first record, a gatefold with foil stamping:
And the inside:
Part of the connection is that one of the songs on this first record, written before I ever met Holly, was inspired by a piece in my book
The cover of the second record will be a continuation of the visual ideas as the first, so they'll be something of a set. Also it's a double LP.
Holly's already been in the studio a bunch. The new record is being recorded at Tiny Telephone in San Francisco, produced by John Vanderslice. Alan Sparhawk (of Low) is playing on it, as are a few other great people you can read about
. Some of my sketches and preparatory drawings for the design are also on offer as rewards in the campaign.
If you want a copy of the first record you might be able to get one from her, but I also just put a few copies up at my store site,
