Inspiration: J. Tillman's Album Artwork

When I was a younger I wanted to grow up to design album covers for a living. Somewhere along the line the reality of doing that was brushed aside, but in a sense, I still dream of doing just that. These album covers for musician J. Tillman (of Fleet Foxes) just reignited that not-so-recently-lost desire within me. I know the first one, for his album Year in the Kingdom, was designed by the amazing Mario Hugo (who I will do a separate post on later), but I can't figure out who did the artwork for Vacilando Territory Blues. Do you know?

Design by Kamma Claire: Celebrate Fen & TJ

Here's a flier I designed for my boyfriend, Fen, and our friend TJ who are both celebrating their 30th birthdays come December. TJ's wife, Stacy, and I are throwing them both a big '70's inspired disco dance party at the Space Gallery in SF. We've got some local DJ friends (Sorcerer, Jon Blunck, Hotthobo) all lined up to bring the boogie to the people. Needless to say, it's going to be awesome.
