The idea came from a dream I had where I was walking round these suburban streets pointing out things like a big pot and telling a friend how everything was art (even asleep he’s pretentious).  I turned around and in this grass verge of a very normal front garden, a Spanish looking man was buried to the waist  standing;  as I watched two woman walked from behind and put a marriage veil over his head.

Obviously I woke up and thought that will do for the cover. The hand is held up to resemble the international sign of greeting (I kept my trousers on).

I chopped it up a bit to add a hint of dis-orientation and off-set that with a ‘learning to read’ primary school font in lower case, because it’s nice to look at new things like 7 year old does.

As for the title: ‘over here in the trees’ refers to my  finally drawing some attention to myself after all this time (and that joke with the punchline ‘over here on the swings’ – I’ll tell it to  you some time :-) )
