Choosing a CD cover

Should we choose the first professional photograph of our duo or the last? Or an artist’s impression?

While Robert is getting our first CD produced, I’m looking around for a suitable image for the CD cover. Should we use the first official photograph taken of us or the last?

Or is it more timeless to use something more abstract? Perhaps a drawing, such as the one below by a young artist after seeing our concert in Oosterkerk, Amsterdam?

As one of the earliest bloggers (since 1999), I enjoy meeting people who embrace "out-of-the-box" thinking and fear not the unknown. I believe in collaboration for sustainability because it increases stakeholder value.

  1. I love the idea of using the drawing. I’ve always liked that kind of cover better than photos though so that just might be my taste.

    If you do go with the photo I would use the more recent as it feels more welcoming.
