CBS records called and wanted a cd cover illustration for their new artist, PJ Olsson
. They said that he wanted an image of angels flying over New York City. While I worked on the project, I listened to the new album that they sent over. I also got a chance to speak to PJ over the phone about the details of the imagery. PJ expressed that he really wanted my visual interpretation of some of the lyrics in his music. It was great speaking with PJ, a really nice down to earth guy. The one request that he wanted was "a lot of angels flying over the Twin Towers." I cringed a little at this request. It was like revisiting a deceased friend. The Twin Towers were my view outside my east village studio windows. I said I would try to fit it in. Anyhow, this was supposed to be a holiday-ish post. Happy Holidays everybody. Here is how the job went.
