 MUSIC 

This has been something I have been wanting to change almost since the time they were created. My software resources at the time were extremely limited which meant the images were never quite what I wanted them to be.

While there are also things I would change/fix about the albums themselves, they stand as they are.

While I am not going back to edit the albums there were certain things I had in mind for each album "cover" and only a couple of them ended up meeting those ideas.

With that in mind, I am starting with this one because it was the one for which my idea was the most complete. Also, it is the only album I did which included songs I had written. I wanted it to be a puzzle with a piece missing. So below is the album cover for Piece of Me as it was conceived in my head.

MISC

I've also made several albums remixed specifically at the speed I run. I like to listen to music when I run and don't like the break between songs. I used to listen to other remix albums but there was clash with their beat and my run speed. Now, I can put on one of my remixes and match my pace to the beat of the music. This also helps me keep a constant speed when not running on a treadmill. Below is a sample of the albums and how the design has changed over the years.
