Ever heard of the acoustic cover of “HEY YA”?? For those of you who do not know who the band Obadiah Parker is, then this is your chance. Mat Weddle, in Obadiah Parker is a fabulous musician and friend here in Phoenix Az. He got quite a lot of attention from the press and radio stations for the acoustic cover of “Hey ya” by outkast awhile back. He has an amazing voice. WOW.
I had the privilage of doing engagement and wedding photography for Mat and Lisa last february, and fell in love with them. They are an amazing couple. It was great to get to know them in a more personal way. I feel like I really get to know people when i take their picture. its kind of magical.
Anyway, I was asked to do some design & illustration work for some of mat’s new music. Here are a few cd sleeve comps that I finished up today. some different colors. check out his hey ya video and myspace.
here is the photo that i used to gather inspiration for mat’s look.
