Peace to all, and thanks for your patience.

I've responded to as many individual notes as possible... 

This project, design wise, has been paralyzed by my own insecurities. The initial cover design of the 3 symbols (the Gun, the Crown and the Heart), did not sit well with me after the product was produced. I look into my closet, and collectively, all I see is close to 1,000 Mac-10 machine guns. It makes my stomach turn. I've debated for months on rather or not to send the product, as is, out... I wanted this cover to be provocative and define the aggressive nature of the music on Fearless Beauty - not perpetuate the idea of violence that has plagued my community and taken some of my closest friends. This was a mistake, and I apologize for the wait. I've sent some of you this product, mostly friends and family, but I can't continue to let this merchandise circulate. You will have your physical rewards by late Feb.

I ask of your patience, as I'm currently going over different design concepts. 

Again, here is the album Fearless Beauty, and a library of my past work:

      No worries, art doesn't always come out perfect. Also, the link for Love, Always doesn't work.

      Rodney,

      I have nothing but respect for your works and posts such as these only serve to remind me of why I chose to support your work, even in the minor way that I did.

      Thank you for sharing your gifts with all of us.

      Glen
