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.
