LOST POST! I could have sworn I published this a month or so ago, but…apparently not. At the end of it, I was talking about planning for the releases of the “Alcoholic” singles. Since that’s over and done with, I took it out. But you can read the rest of what I had intended for you to read a long time ago. Read on.While I was waiting for other parties to help me get the movie sample recordings situation figured out, I worked on the cover art. You see, I wasn’t sure if I would be legally able to use the fancy green font I used on the 2008 pseudo-release of the album. (Side note: I used it on a few shirts that I printed for myself too.) So I was struggling, trying to create a similar look, which failed, and it led me to using a different look entirely, which messed all sorts of stuff up.
That original 2008 cover art for Boobs, Butts, and Feets isn’t all that original, it turns out. The problem is that I can’t find out where I found most of the images that I collaged together to create the cover. I want everything to be on the up and up, so I’m going to have to recreate it. The background originally was made up of 2 space scenes with a superimposed moon. I don’t know where any of those images came from originally. The bottom features a purple hand grasping purple barbed wire. I don’t know where that came from either. The rest is my original artwork. So I’ve been scoping out free-to-use artwork as well as creating my own images to recreate my original design. Admittedly, the 2008 version was kind of silly and dumb looking. I’m keeping the general aesthetic, but it should look better. It’s kind of like the songs; they’re kind of silly and dumb and will remain that way, but they’ll sound way better. Really.
Back to that cool futuristic-looking font, I didn’t think I’d be able to use it on the cover (let alone anywhere else), and that made me sad. But it turns out I CAN use it after some investigation, which makes me happy. It also makes me feel better about plastering it on shirts, guitar picks, etc. And…it opens up the possibility of printing old school Robby Suavé shirts! Boom.
