Fellow Eugene Ukulele fans, I have been given the extreme honor of illustrating a couple of CD covers for our favorite Tasmanian. I don't think he will mind that I bring it up in advance.

What if we make it a bit of a class project? I can post ideas and prelims as I come up with them and get feedback from other fans. Sound like fun?

Yay!!! I'm sure you will do a great job. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Can you include something that's a bit of a nod to Cliff Edwards? Not anything literal, necessarily, and certainly not that cricket (because You-Know-Who would come after you). Just something that acknowledges him, as Eugene is his spiritual grandson.

That's a great idea. I'll think it over. For starters, here's a two minute sketch I did on an index card. An idea for "Strawberries For My Sweetheart".

I think that male strawberry will have to be making Eugene's singing face.

Very exciting! I'll have to buy Jon's CD collection all over again!

Ha! If you've got them, I'm sure he'll make the new covers downloadable. :)

Here's the finished drawing of the first one. Still needs to be colored.

Fun! Hey, maybe you should do a Eugene Ukulele coloring book.

Great idea, Mars. I suppose he could use the B/W as a coloring sheet on his website.

I don't know how I missed this thread the first time. So excited for this to be finished though for Jon himself and for all of us, his adoring fans! :)

Looks great!
