I make music at http://colortheory.com
I'm a recording artist with 8 full-length albums, with plans to release new songs individually as they are completed. I need a square image to accompany each song for my site, iTunes, etc. These will be digital-only releases, not physical CDs.
You can see my album covers and hear my music at http://music.colortheory.com. Drawings or photographs are fine. Maybe even an anime-style drawing, though perhaps it would come off too playful for the subject matter.
The first song is called "A Slip of the Finger." Here's a little intro to the song, plus the lyrics:
Recent politics aside, we've all posted something online that we regretted about a millisecond later. Whether it's an email blasted out in anger, a status update ranting about your boss, or publicly revealing something best left private, lives are ruined with a slip of the finger.
A Slip of the Finger
©2011 Brian Hazard (ASCAP)
I am an outcast
And it suits me fine
God knows my actions
Really crossed the line
Each time you touch a part of me
I fear that you’ll break it
Cause I’ve done something I regret
And I’ll never shake it
A slip of the finger
A mark that will linger forever
Hero or villain
A legacy hinges on
A slip of the finger
The fleeting impulse
Of a maniac
A flash of panic
I can’t take it back
Kings abdicate and nations fall
For smaller offences
Thought I could justify it all
Until I came to my senses
Nothing to live for
Careless in defeat
Why bother looking
When I cross the street?
I’d promise anything to go back
To when my past wasn’t checkered
But every key we press is part
Of our permanent record
One lapse of judgement
Ablaze in the snarling heat of the moment
That’s when I lost you darling.
My real goal here is to find a graphic design partner who can create a consistent look across the different images and possibly my web site. Realistically, I probably won't make more than $200 back per song, so I'm prepared to offer $100 per image after this first one (just between you and me, not as a contest). I know you're worth more than that, but it would be a regular gig, every 1-2 months, for the foreseeable future.
