When I started thinking about the cover art for We, Ourselves, and Us, I knew that I wanted to do something different than what I had done in the past. I needed to figure out a way to incorporate all of the people, places, and things that helped influence and create this album -- on a single album cover. Easy right?!?
I began searching Behance, hoping that I would find an artist that could transfer my vision to paper. Behance has some of the most talented artists I've ever seen, and I highly recommend checking out the site.
After finding a few artists on Behance that I thought were dope, I ended up following them on Instagram. Instagram then started to recommend other artists with similar styles (I'm not sure if this is really cool or kind of scary ha!). That's when I came across @jenelila.
I was moved by her artwork and attention to detail, and I knew she could help me deliver the artwork I was looking for.
Every picture, name, or logo included on the cover means something to me. For example, the anchor represents my very first performance where I traveled (shout out to Missouri!). Jenny really captured everything I could have ever hoped for. I was (and still am) completely blown away. Thank you Jenny, because I couldn't have asked for a better cover.
I also have to give credit to Billy Arnett for his help with the artwork on the physical copies. Enjoy the artwork, and look out for more information on pre-ordering the album. Peace.
