I took a little peek into my dear and crafty friend Lindsey's blog this morning and was inspired to follow her in this creative little project. That being: One must create a hypothetical album cover for a fictional band. I was surprised at how "cool" I thought mine came out. I dig it.
The quote I found was by William S. Burroughs and, though random indeed, they ring true. "A paranoid is someone who knows a little of what's going on."
Here are the rules:
1 - Go to "wikipedia.com" Select “random article”or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 - Go to "Random quotations"or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3 The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3 - Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days”or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover art.
4 - Use photoshop or similar to put it all together. I used Picnik (http://www.picnik.com/)
