It's because "Andrew Bird said to wear your best fleece". So she did.

Dear Patrick,

I just spent one week getting weird sunburns in California. The right front quadrant of my body is the color of Barbie lipstick. Barbie lipstick? Yes. That's what happens when pasty white vampire skin sees the sun for the first time. And while I have more to say on this subject, we'll have to talk about it later.

First, we need to talk about my girl Julia. She's a dream. She's the best roommate that Boathouse ever saw. She left today to serve a mission in South Korea. And literally in her last days in the states, she managed to put out her first cd. If you know what's good for you, you'll follow this link and buy that thing. Or at least listen to it. She's just too good at everything. Everything. I want to be Julia when I grow up. And since she's the queen of goodness and kindness, she let me do the album artwork. Yessssss. Check it out.

My brain hurt so much from this project. I think I was overly concerned with coming up with the most perfect design to represent her music in my style. And I'm just not a graphic designer. In the end, the most perfect album cover found itself. And I like the way it turned out. Thank you thank you thank you, Julia. Good luck in Korea! Make God proud.

Love, Adrienne
