Polymer Clay Cat Images used in Hep Cats CD Cover

I'm thrilled that some images of the colorful and playful polymer clay cats from my Melody O'Beau Designs jewelry collection have been used on the cover of a new CD. My husband, composer Sy Brandon owns Emeritus Recordings, a recording company that specializes in contemporary classical musical which will soon be releasing  a new CD called Hep Cats. It contains music for clarinet and flute performed by  Cassandra Rondinelli Eisenreich and Danielle Woolery of the Ardente Duo. Sy normally does all the artwork for the CD's himself, but this time he decided that he wanted to collaborate with me by incorporating images of some of my polymer clay Crazy Cats. He photographed and then manipulated the various images into a "feline audience". I'm thrilled to say that I really love his collaborative results, so I thought I'd share a photo of the soon to be released CD.
