Really Bad Punk Art + A Request
There's somewhat amusing Tumblr called Really Bad Punk Art (which often resembles Ramone to the Bone without the downloads). All the badness does get me to thinking about some of my less-than-brilliant cut n' paste cover art that MRML has featured over the years:
Here I lifted a teenage pencil crayon work from Deviant Art.
Bless you, Discogs (and Paint)
Yes, as the texture suggests, that's just a cropped T-shirt.
A verging-on-clever idea that I couldn't pull off, despite a serious effort.
I'll continue to muddle away making cover art, choosing to believe that I'm getting better at it, regardless of any evidence to the contrary.
HOWEVER, if there are any people out there who are talented in lay-out and design interested in creating cover (and maybe back cover) art for some of our upcoming projects you are invited to contact me at:
UPDATE: Received two generous offers of help already. I'll keep you posted on further developments.
