We're really happy to share our piece for the up coming "Cover Bombing" in association with Jackknife Prints. ( Rough Trade, and Rise Record Shop ).
Participating artists were asked to embellish any original LP of their choosing. I will admit, this was a much harder selection than I had anticipated. It came down to an LP that had space for additional art, an LP someone would actually want to own, and an album that resonated with me personally. I have great memories of working with my dad in his garage, rebuilding a '71 Karmann Ghia and this album was our anthem.
To my surprise, when the Eagles LP's arrived at our studio, it actually folded out to a huge 24.5" x 25" poster! We couldn't just do a cover anymore, we had to do the entire LP! I really love how the inner sleeve image shows through.
Our good friends at Brooklyn Laser helped make our vision come to life. A big shout to John for his help. He is a badass when it comes to production. You can check out more of the awesome stuff they make with Lasers at BKLZR.com
