Sound + Vision: Album Cover Art Show 3-21-2015

Fast approaching on March 21, Q Pop 2 will have it's Album Cover Art Show. Artists are asked to create original album cover art from any album of their choice. Any musical genre....any art style. They are asked to ignore any previously created cover art and basically pretend they are designing the jacket for the very first time.
In recent years....with digital downloads becoming more popular.....the importance of Album art has declined in popular culture. But album covers can describe and inform...and of course sell....music contained within. At their best...they become inseparable from the music.

Q Pop will also be creating a playlist of selections from albums picked by the participating artists.

Here's our selection of some great album cover designs to inspire !! Enjoy!!
