  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The album is meant to flow as a story. The front cover features me and my guitar stepping into an open book, required to make a choice in order to move on. Once opened, I encounter a green landscape with houses I am unfamiliar with. The actual CD showcases fish, which I relate to releasing things, such as things I couldn't say. The CD booklet was meant to read like a poetry book. For each song I illustrated/painted something that related to the song somehow. There are no mentions in the CD booklet that it is for a CD to add to the book feel. The back of the CD case features blue circles to represent honesty.

    Each case has been hand stamped, painted, and drawn on by myself. I scanned my drawings for houses and cut them out and colored them all with colored pencil. I used quite a bit of glue sticks too. Every button/pin is hand painted/inked and features a wolf. I thought it could be something that helps make you feel like you can take on anything when you have self doubt.

    50 were made.

    Each order will contain a physical Open Book burned audio CD, CD case, CD booklet, and a wolf pin/button.

lyrics

i’ve been rinsing out those dirty dishes
i’ve been making meals made for two
packing leftovers you’ve been slowly picking
and you’re coming back like you always do

i’m a backup plan for your bad friends
yet you’re so alike,
coulda passed a reflection for you

back up from me
what am i some kind of sunflower seed?
you pick me up to put me down
what a clever strategy but you’re all found out

found you in a museum sculpture, something ‘bout the eyes
losing warmth in all your blankets
you’re colder than crushed ice
but something in me wants you to stay around
i keep thinking that one day you’ll turn around.
