The Bob Watts Trio asked Simeon to come up with a design for their limited edition album. Because the album was about reinterpreting classic tunes through jazz Simeon thought that it would be meaningful to do something similar for the image for the album. Because the Bob Watts Trio prides itself on jazz that swings referencing something from the past that incorporated a swing felt right, and inspiration for the cover art was found in the painting called The Swing by Jean-Honoré Fragonard that features a woman on a swing losing her shoe in a moment of abandon. Simeon created this illustrative solution after the painting, the solution was a hit and the album title came from the illustration, Kick Off Your Shoes.
