    A Profile - The King On Stage - Vol 1 & 2

    Hey :-)
    How is everyone? Sorry to have been away so long, but between work, the doctor's and hospital visits and so on it has been awhile since I have been able to spend much time on here. I have been going through a very difficult creative block as well LOL, so my webpage and cover artwork has been coming along very slowly. I started working on "The King On Stage" series quite awhile back, but never got very far with it. Having a little bit of luck I thought I would post some of the covers that I have atleast come up with so far and see what kind of feedback I get. I have a very very small photo collection, so I had to really sort through and try and use something that atleast was close to relating to that concert or atleast in that year :-) I was trying to do something different and it can be so difficult not to do something that doesn't atleast look similar to something someone else has already done, if you know what I mean :-) So here goes...

    Attractive layout and colour scheme, works well as a set, be interested to check out how you carry the theme over to the back tray and the rest of the design, some good potential for a great set.


    Some great photo choices too

    Thanks for all the great compliments I have been in what little spare time I have working on the set(s). Since the Chinese Dragon jumpsuit is the suit I have the most photos of in high quality I started there. Here is what I have so far...I am still working on the disc, since I have never done one before it is something new...Any comments, suggestion, ect would be greatly appreciated....Hope you like what I have done so far..

    It's a really nice set all together.... But I think it will improve the total design if you'd use the original fort baxter logo.

    Just an idea

    Glad you like the set so far Yes I plan on completing all eight cd's as well as the booklet that came with it, if I can ever get a good scan of it..My set came in a trade, so it is on CD-R and I am working from scans of the original cd's I found on the net. As for using the original Fort Baxter logo, I have a copy of one I will just have to resize it appropriately, I though the logo would look cool if its colors matched the cover, but hey thats why I ask for comments I also changed colors on the TCB world logo but have an original one of those as well I can use...I will be posting each cd as I complete them, my biggest issue right now is time and photo's of quality, but I am working with that I have...will keep everyone posted on how the set is coming along...Still not sure about that front cover yet
