Woohoo
I know this is kind of a pointless post but I wanted to shout out and be happy at some people that might care.

I made an album cover for a band I know who are from Liverpool, UK, a few months ago and it finally got onto iTunes today.
I'm really happy with it even though I probably could have done a bit better with the image I had.

Anyways, here's a grab to prove it, heh

Has anyone else from MacRumors got their artwork or music on iTunes?


A larger version of the album cover is at my flickr that should be linked in my sig. (as .photo)

thanks DoFoT9

so i guess you'll be asking for a 40% cut of their income now

I should be yeah!! haha

I actually did it all for free aswell, doh! It should mean a littl more work in the future though and I don't mind helping them out.

It's weird when my friends say that they've seen my artwork on posters for gigs around Liverpool. Feels good :D

I like the design and congrats!

Who cares if you did it for free- you got it out there. The important thing is that it gets around and you get noticed. Hell, I do a lot of little jobs on the side for what I consider to be decent pay (and definitely what the people I do the work for consider cheap)- but those people tell other people and now I get a ton of side business. It's all about making contacts.

Congrats! Love the cover.

My old band's music on iTunes can be found here (http://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewAlbum?id=4478315&s=143441). It's the last CD we released before our label imploded and we fizzled out due to old age. ;)

Well done :)
I do some album work for a band at college and it feels pretty good when you see your work around :)
Now, just need to get it on iTunes ...
