Through Beau Alquizola, I was introduced to Rhonda Everitt, the musical mind behind Pale Beneath the Blue. As she was putting together a Christmas album, she asked if I could provide her with the CD design, as she was looking for something fun and cartoony.
There were many ideas floating around until it was finally narrowed down to this. I think it was the penguins that sold Rhonda.
In addition to the CD art, I also repurposed the artwork for a couple wallpapers and a Flash-animated holiday greeting.
