Jesse Olsen Bay's CD, "makings", was recently released. It is a collection of twenty songs that he created from unpublished writings of his grandmother, Tillie Olsen, known for her books, short stories, and essays about lives of women and working class people. She called her unpublished writings, "Blueys", since she used blue sheets of paper for jotting down ideas, notes, bits of poetry and prose, and an occasional comment.
Last Fall, Jesse approached me to create art for the CD cover. The image above is the result. However, during the process I presented several options from which he could choose.
