It’s a great fit as the song “Everyone Knows About Me” is aimed at raising awareness about ME (CFS, CFIDS) and a lot of my work is infused with life with ME.
Cinderkeys, aka Susan Wenger, had been particularly taken by a drawing of mine from February 2007 called “In a Box“.
I attempted a reworking of the drawing – I wanted something that felt more polished than the original furious doodle.

But in smoothing out the kinks on the reworking I lost some of the essential essence of the original piece. It lacked the energy (yes how ironic for an artist with ME – energy!), the rawness and emotion.
So we agreed the orginal was the way to go.

Now it’s been typset ready to be used – primarily as artwork for digital download sites. Susan (who knows about these things) says that it might take up to 6 months for it to be available to download from digital music services – but I’ll be following the Cinder Bridge blog for any news.
As the song is all about ME Awareness and as Blogging for International ME/CFS Awareness 2008 brought us into contact with each other to make this all possible, I’m donating 10% of my fee to ME Research UK www.meresearch.org.uk
