She's one of those introspective chicks who accompanies herself on guitar and performs fully clothed. Emphasis on talent not the belly-button! :D

So do you have an idea of the group this cover is for, Mal? I have to say that when I first looked at it, the thing that popped into my head was The Talking Heads "Road to Nowhere."

Irina

Great idea for the theme, Bobby! :D
I know exactly what I will be doing (already started on it and my husband wants to take part in it since both of us are big fans of the band that doesn't exist any longer and have almost all their LPs, tapes and CDs), and as soon as I am done with school stuff I will be back to the project. :D

This is an interesting start. It would get my attention in a record shop.
Boy, when I went to bed (I'm on AST) I had the only entry. I was glad to find another one this morning!
I notice lots of new members posting in various threads...we need to get them into these FND's. Hey, all you newbies, join the fun!! :)

I haven't been doing the FND and other WC projects. Going through withdrawal about it, too. :( I want to, but I just have to get some things cleared off my project list before I can.

It's a great project idea, Bobby. Wish I could have participed.

Tell you what. I'll post an album cover piece that I copied back in high school (15 years ago...ugh). It's not a redesign so much as pretty much a straight copy.

It was General Public's Hand to Mouth.

Here's the original album cover.

Cool LeAnne , is that pen and ink?

Elankat
09-28-2002, 05:25 PM
Yep. I can't remember the type of pens. They were diposable ones with gray barrels and it's on posterboard. Like I said, it was a LONG time ago.

Guys, here's our contribution. :) Took about half an hour. I have explained who the guy is in the description of the entry.
Just a few details about the cover: the plane, the sun - hope... People living in the houses behind him are the ones not daring to leave their apartments, not having the courage to speak up.
...The authorities would turn off the elecricity so the band wouldn't be able to perform but they performed anyway. I think we've loved him because his songs were very true, no lies... I think young people that are no longer young are still missing him: we always need to hear the truth :)
