more CD art!

I just finished this quick job for a friend of mine, and I'm really happy with how it turned out. I took this picture one night when I had a studio in the West Bottoms here in KC. I've always liked it, but never used it on anything until now. The buildings were in silhouette when I took it, but the sky was more of a deep blue. When Brent described what he was thinking for the CD about buildings in silhouette against an orangey sky, I immediately thought of this picture. After playing with the color for a while in PhotoShop, I ended up with this. We went back and forth of the placement of the type, but after showing him this version he gave me the OK. The name of the band is Angie Fights Crime. The CDs will be available at their gigs.

The type I used is one of my faves, MISPROJECT, by the very talented designer/illustrator Eduardo Recife.
