The Legislature behind Carolyn Neapole’s guitar in 1998.
Carolyn Neapole. Dear old (not “old” as in “old,” just “old” as in “we’ve known each other going on eleven years”) friend, amazing singer/songwriter/performer/producer and happydesigns‘ first real live design client!
And, above, a scanned photo of her guitar at the Legislature.
This shot was used on the cover of The Q!’s 1998 Collector’s Edition CD. When I heard the CD was coming down the pike, my mind immediately snapped to this cool guitar Carolyn owned, and I knew I wanted it for the front cover.
Separately, happydesigns put together the artwork for Carolyn’s first CD, the letting go, designed her website (yes, a fresh coat of pixels is on the way) and registered a good-luck-getting-something-this-awesome-these-days domain name for her, carolyn.ca.
Why all the nostalgia? Why, because this Thursday, Carolyn releases her new eponymous CD (also happydesigned =) and, shouldja be in the neighbourhood of the Cottage Bistro, 4468 Main Street in Vancouver, this Thursday night ’roundabout 9:00 pm, go experience it live!
Tell her some website with an eleven-year-old photo of her guitar sent you.
In my heart, this shot was always a close runner-up for the cover artwork, but it is, admittedly, a smidge on the abstract side if you don’t know immediately see it’s a guitar. And live in Victoria. And thus know what those buildings are.
