creating album cover for talented little girl shy

My friend Ilana has asked me to do some art for her album cover that she will be finishing in the near future. I did her Myspace a few months ago, after some frustration; as I don't use myspace let alone have I ever created a myspace layout/background. We did have big ideas at first but turned out the coding was a bit too complicated for msyelf. You can view her space here : Little Girl Shy. Check out her music while you are there.. She's quite good. Anyways, so on to the album cover. We decided it would be best to do whatever she liked most and not try to have it relate to the myspace artwork as we could always change that later on. She liked the Lenka album art work and send me a few other album cover that she liked. I found it very hard to not copy the Lenka style as its very close to my own and what I might have come up with without seeing the artwork before hand. So I did try to steer clear of it.. I'm not sure how successful that was.

Here is what I've come up with so far.

I haven't heard back from her what she thinks yet.. but hopefully it's a step in the right direction.

I think I will change the tree a bit; the shape is a bit weird for me. It also needs a bit of cleaning up but other than that I quite like it.

Its here!

The website is finally done! Fini!

I think it needs a few more touching ups but it's pretty much done. But if you are reading this then you have probably come to the blog from the webpage so you already know thats its done. How exciting! Finally my own website. Hopefully eventually we can put an actual store on there where you can order coasters straight from the website rather than just emailing me. But that will take time.

Website is coming.. the website is coming

Right now my husband, mr. tom, is trying to upload my very own website. I have been saying I would get a website for probably 4 years now. But like most people I am a procrastinator and like to take my time doing important things. The main reason why we have finally decided to get on with it is the coaster thing. At the moment I have just uploaded an album of different designs to facebook for people to view and then order, but it is sort of limited. Not everyone uses facebook... but most people can go to a website. So there we go, I will have a website very soon (fingers crossed). We have been having some trouble getting it up and running. But when it is done you will be able to find it at
