The Holiday Album

Oakland, CA Realtor Doug Fuller has incredibly eclectic taste in Christmas music. Each year he puts together a Christmas CD for his friends and clients with a wonderful mix of unusual holiday music. He asked me to create an album cover for this year’s Holidays Around the World mix.

I wanted to do a painted album inspired by classic Christmas albums of the 50s and 60s by artists like Dean Martin or Bing Crosby. This is a Photoshop painting that relies heavily on photo reference to establish a strong likeness and using textured art brushes to achieve the look. A super fun project for both us, this got rave reviews from his fans.

This is a perfect example of what Secret Fan Base is all about. I admire Doug’s unique style and world view and was able to create something wholly original that celebrates and highlights what his fans¬†love about him.

Happy New Year!
