Re: those old CD's -

I had my high school students paint an artist's reproduction on the CD
itself (round format really challenged them), then on the jewel case I had
them use paintings instead of songs and put in the artist's biography. They
turned out fantastic and the students really got into them.

Also, the Otis School of Design uses the O as their logo and sends out
wonderful calenders every year with paintings depicting the O logo. I have
thought of having students create their own Otis logo on Cd's.
