On Monday I got an unexpected email: “Do you do CD artwork?”

The request was coming from one of Ireland’s top musicians. “These are some CD covers i like … if you had any ideas i’d love to see your work,” he wrote. I was so surprised and star-struck that I forgot I’m not really a graphic artist.

Still … four hours and 30 layouts later, I’d come up with a few options:

Distressed CD cover 2 BLOG

Distressed CD cover BLOG

Evolution CD cover alt 3 BLOG

Guthrie alt BLOG CD cover

Seated Man BLOG

Open road BLOG CD cover

Tree BLOG CD cover

No word yet on my musician friend’s favorite(s). But if you were shopping for a celtic-folk-rasta album, which cover would most draw YOUR eye?
