Earlier this year, I entered two CD cover designs for the Counting Crows new album release, Underwater Sunshine. Counting Crows is one of my all-time fave bands, just love their poetic music. So... I had to at least give it a shot. Below are my two cover designs. The band said their album is reflective, like looking back on an endless summer. So, I dug back into my photos from last summer, reflecting... That's how I felt about my Krul Lake pic of Jackson cannon-balling on a hot summer day. So I used this as my first point of departure on the first cover. Then I utilized a jellyfish exhibit shot from our trip to Chicago. Hope you enjoy these! Counting Crows announced their winning cover, unfortunately not mine, but it was well worth the trip back in time.
