I was approached by a friend of mine to design the CD package for his buddy, Joe, who had recently recorded a commemorative CD of songs written for his daughter. Joe was dying of cancer, so we had to move quickly and I could only work with supplied photography.
I never got a chance to meet Joe before he died, but I saw a photo of him smiling with the CD in his hands. That was payment enough for me.
p.s. the songs are great.
