Every year at this time, I design, layout, and print about 20,000 Christmas audio CDs for a client. I always make sure that I get some copies for all my current clients and friends. This year’s album is all finished and back in my hands, and it’s so wonderful! I am excited for you all to get a copy.
This is Wasatch Christmas, a Christmas CD that is produced every year by one of my best friends, James Conlee. In fact it is a joint project of friends in many ways because the cover painting is by another friend of ours, James Christensen (a famous painter with Greenwich Workshops), and some of the tracks are by our other good friend, Ryan Shupe (Ryan Shupe and the RubberBand), as well as some tracks by James Conlee himself.
The name of the cover painting is, “Saint Nicholas of Myra.” James Christensen’s paintings are always so incredibly captivating. This particular painting I hadn’t seen until working on this project, but I love it. The colors, the details, the expression — everything just keeps me looking deep into this painting. It really made this CD artwork wonderful.
It’s a little known fact that I design all of the CDs that both James Conlee and Ryan Shupe produce, and I think that this is the 12th CD I’ve designed for James. Some can be seen right here (James Conlee – Sunday / Ryan Shupe and the RubberBand – Last Man Standing.)
So for all my holiday clients that are ordering this time of year, whether you get a large collection of various wall portraits or even just reorder one small 8×10 print, I am giving you a FREE Wasatch Christmas CD! The cover painting is phenomenal, the music is phenomenal, and the whole production is worth owning!
We are getting close to Christmas as far as appointments go, so if you’d like some fantastic images of yourself or your family, now’s the time to get in the studio. Give me a call at 801-728-3317 to set thing up. And remember, I’ll include a Christmas CD with your order.
