Well we sure love doing CD cover artwork, so it was a real pleasure doing another design for Tara Simmons, this time for her EP, titled All You Can. We asked Tara for a thorough background on all the songs. Her voice is soft and rather cute, but her music has a lot of layers and depth and often not-so-cute lyrics, so we wanted to design something that reflects that. The scene shows a doll (that looks a little like Tara) in a setting that looks cute but unsettling at the same time. Every single object in the room is in one way or another a symbolic reference to a song on the EP. (Okay, except for the nuns, they were thrown in just for fun)
