Here's a sample of my cd disc and package designs. These were mostly regional bands from my days in college at University of Arkansas, in Fayetteville. Rock on.

Punkinhead was a funk band in the late 80's and early 90's in Fayetteville. This was their first record, titled New South Soul from 1992. The cd cover is actually a 9 panel, foldout poster. Hand illustrated and color-separated with rubylith and halftone chartpack film in 4 spot colors. The cd is a hand illustrated 2-color design. Both the poster and cd feature subliminal imagery both subtle and obvious. Click here to see the full layout, and here to see the disc design.

The Tares were an alt rock/country band from Fayetteville, which reached some prominence (SXSW) before going down in a huge blaze of glory and gunfire. Well, actually the members of the band all fell into a wallowing morass of Maddog20/20, speedmetal and hookers - a dangerous concoction, by anyone's standards. Nonetheless, I was damn proud to work with them on their 1998 release, the brother ep. This record kicks ass and i still listen to it often.

Oreo Blue has been around the Fayetteville music scene for over a decade, and still regularly pack roadhouses from Memphis to Kansas City. I've worked on several cd projects for the band, and recently completed this dvd/cd combo package, The Oreo Blue Experience. This record and concert dvd feature the guitar mastery of Gary Hutchison in a tribute to the music of Jimi Hendrix. Both the sound and video production on this project are top notch.
