I love making mix CDs. And I love making the collaged covers that come with them. It's so fun collecting all this stuff and then seeing how it will be used in projects. I've noticed that my mixes are like the collages that dawn their covers: patchworks of sound, texture, color, pattern and language. Everyone has a style for making mixes, I guess that's mine.
I made a stack of CDs as thank-you's for the volunteers that came out to "Swab for Elissa" yesterday (which was a lot of fun). There is nothing purposely symbolic to/of/for Lissy in the tracklisting or in the images themselves; they are just what I felt like using at the time specifically for this event keeping in mind the folks I was making them for.
Feel free to download the CD here and grab the cover you like the best for uploading into itunes or printing out for an actual physical CD (imagine that)!
Here is the tracklisting insert:
