About the Book
the Art of 2657 Productions. . . is a collection of artwork used for most of the self-released CDs under the 2657 Productions "label."
2657 Productions is an avenue for me to put together my love for music, drawing, computers, words, friends. . . a whole bunch of stuff, basically. . . into convenient little CD packages that I get to share with a really small audience.
Why the name? A lot of the stuff here is from when I lived in the house pictured on the cover of this book. We always called it "the back house." The address? 2657 Foothill Road. Hence the excitingly original name for the label. That, and it was G'pa's home. . . and he was a big inspiration to me in terms of art and music.
A lot of stuff happened in the back house at 2657. Friends would come over and make music. We had impromptu concerts. I got to blast my music as loud as I liked. I filled many little books with scribbles and doodles. I started to teach myself graphic design on my bootlegged copy of Photoshop. This collection is just a sample of that output.
