Recognise this?

Recognise this?

Earlier in the year I was approached by an Indie Seattle band The Soft Hills who wanted to use my artwork on their forthcoming debut EP.Naturally I was happy to oblige and after many emails they decided on the artwork you see here.

The original photo was one I had entered in a Man Ray contest with Paul Grand's French finca being the starting image but transported to a NZ landscape with added phone box :-)

The inside of the EP also features one of my images
Soft hills

The package containing my copies of the CDs arrived today and opening it was like opening a surprise Xmas present. I think it's come out beautifully and the music is great too!
You can see Garrett and the rest of the group in action Here

I can relate to this experience :) Congratulations Jill... I hope you get to experience it more frequently.
I did not see a credit to you on the notes... perhaps I missed it. I love working with indie groups for next to nothing, but I always ask for some kind of credit.

Thanks Paul!
And thanks Fernando, yes I did get credited on the cover, it's at the bottom and I've also been told they've had many compliments on the artwork too.
