I provided record sleeve direction, design and illustration for Goldenhair on Schirmer Music NYC. The title is taken from one of James Joyce's poems from his opus 'Chamber Music'. Composer Brian Byrne beautifully orchestrated the  poems, featuring different jazz, pop and classical singers on each song. 

The image came about by experimenting with ink and brushwork, trying initially to create the flow of hair with the medium. This ultimately led to the happy accident of the brush strokes resembling the contours of a female face.
