A long, long time ago, I sent a little box of blank 'record covers' out into the world, and now they've come home - thank you so much to everyone who was a part of this!
The brief for this particular circle journal was for each participant to choose a rock album that they rated in terms of the music, but weren't so keen on the cover art - and to design a new cover for it.
So, without further ado, here are all the entries (with their originals underneath):
One thing I have noticed is that pretty much all of us took a fairly literal approach, where the originals were more abstract. Well apart from Sian, who went from a VERY literal original and took us, thankfully, a step away from squishy spaghetti :)
I love all the re-imagined covers, now we just have to persuade the record companies to buy the artwork from us and repackage those albums :D
Before I go, I have a favour to ask...... unfortunately a couple of people had to drop out of this CJ as it did its rounds, so I still have two blank records left over:
I would REALLY like to see them get used so that I can add a couple more masterpieces to the box.
So if any of you out there reading this have thought - oh that looks like a fun theme - I'd like to have a go at that - then please let me know by email or in the comments below, I'd really appreciate it.
