ARTISTS & PHOTOGRAPHERS WANTED!

OK, kids, while Uncle Terry and the boys add the final licks of paint to the flames on the hood and sides of this bitchin' Camaro, we've got a little project for you artistic types. Since this project wouldn't have been possible without your support we are going to let you guys create much of the artwork for this album, including the cover and up to 10 pages in the sleeve art.

Here are the rules...: The piece must be square. It must be at least 13"x13" (300 dpi if it's computer art- we are doing vinyl on this, remember). It can be any medium (paint, photography, sculpture, collage, you name it) but remember that the final representation will be a 2-dimensional scan or hi-res photo. It cannot have the title of the album on it (we will be adding that). It must be finished and submitted by midnight, April 3, 2013. Details will forthcoming about how to submit. The final winning pieces will be chosen by the band but every submission will be shown in a special gallery here on our Facebook page, so give it your best shot.

OK, as you know, the album is called "Dig Here, Said The Angel." Here are the lyrics to the title song for some inspiration (you don't have to be literal, just artistic.)

Dig Here Said The Angel
Words and music by Terry Scott Taylor
©2013 Shape Of Air Music, BMI

“Dig here,” said the angel
I asked “My heart? Or my grave?”
“Maybe both,” said the angel, “things can go either way.”

“There’ll come a time,” said the angel,
“you’ll lose that wrinkled suit of skin.
And when you walk up to the big door you can go right on in.”

I cried then,
I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’
Night and day
I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’
To see your beautiful face

“Here’s the catch,” said the angel
“You’re gonna suffer for awhile”
“I’ll tell you straight,” said the angel
“Don’t plan to go out in style”

And meanwhile
I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’
Night and day
I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’, I’m dyin’
To see your beautiful face

Repeat chorus

      You can submit your artwork to artwork@danielamos.com.
      Medium-res jpegs are fine for now 1200x1200 pixels or so. If your art is chosen we'll let you know how to get us the hi-res files.
