  • 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

by the ocean in my dreams
i’m feeling more complete
i’m feeling more upbeat
you don’t have to work for two
i’m finding my way through
i’ll get it right soon

steep, heavy slope, mile stretch
you’ve only met me at my best
going slow step by step
we never speak about our wreck
careful with the words we choose i’m hiding all of my bad news

don’t leave so soon
glass gets replaced
time’s never new
but it’ll take your place

it’d be nice to get to know you
before i say i love you
is that too much to ask for?
no

i’m getting tired
but i’d stay awake
if you only told me
that it’s never fake
