Santa, Take the Night Off album cover

This month I had the distinct pleasure of doing the cover art for Emma Wallace's new Christmas album. I am a big fan of Emma's music and have been eagerly anticipating a Christmas release for years, and this did not disappoint. The songs are sweet, jazzy, catchy, and perfectly festive. You can download her album on iTunes, here.

For the cover Emma gave me carte blanche (which can be both scary and exciting!) and I was so happy that she liked what I came up with. Her title song, "Santa, Take the Night Off", is equal parts saucy and classic, a romantic tune with a decidedly retro vibe, so I thought a simple vintage-style cover would be perfect to convey the mood of the album.

I also did the cover for her Temptation album a few years back, which is available on amazon here. If you aren't already familiar with Emma, definitely give her music a listen! Her songs are always such a delight, and her new Christmas tracks are sure to become standards on your annual seasonal playlists.
