Welcome Fark Artists to your Fartist Friday Contest. This week our theme is "Album Covers." Ever say to yourself, "Self, this photo/painting/drawing I made looks like it could be an album cover"? Show us that artwork of yours AND tell us about that album. Also have I said "album cover" enough times? Album cover.

Contest Rules:

One (1) individual entry item per post please, and a total of three (3) entries posted maximum allowed per person.

All votable entries must follow this week's theme requirements. Posts that don't follow the theme will remain but have Voting disabled. Be sure to check the theme!

Prize: Bragging rights and a mention in the Fark NotNewsletter!

Hearty congratulations to last week's F'Artiste winner, common sense is an oxymoron for truly Great Blue Heron - and check out all the creative F'Artistes we have!

FFFUQ (Fartist Friday Frequently Unasked Questions):

What?
Fartist Fridays are weekly creativity contests that you can participate in with things you have on hand since many of us are stuck at home right now. If you have an idea for a future contest theme please post it here or send it along to Farkback.

Why? To have fun showing off our skills (or lack thereof!) while we practice socially distancing together, and to vote for your favorite entries.

When? This contest is submitted on Thursdays with entries open immediately to TotalFarkers (membership has its privileges!), then it goes to the Main Page on Friday. Entries close around midnight Eastern on Sunday night. All times are approximate because we're all drunk.

How Does Voting Work? Check the "Enable voting for this entry" box. If you forget, just report it and ask. All entries that meet the contest theme are considered eligible for voting, so please mention if you prefer voting NOT be enabled.

Check out past F'artiste contests by clicking on the Topic Tag and check the weekly Fark NotNewsletter for info on that week's contest theme ahead of time. All skill levels encouraged (as you can see from my sample below) and most importantly: We're all in this together so let's create some F'Arts together - Fark Arts, that is.

This 2020 collage would be a good cover for a dream pop, shoe gaze album.

The Great Wall of Sound, self-titled Album. Rock and pop song covers played mainly on traditional East Asian instruments with Phil Spector-style sound engineering.

It's one of her favorite songs, so I imagine it would be an album of quick crunchy jabs that sound like this...

Taken some years back in Holland with (I think) a pentax or minolta as part of Farktography's "pass the Farkamera"

An album of smoky jazz ballads, torch songs, and some classic show tunes. (Digital art via in game photography in Second Life if that matters and post processing.)

Taken with a Sony Ericsson W580i. Slap your black metal logo on it top center.

I'm thinking this will work for a Christopher Cross comeback album.

A Pink Floyd album cover, perhaps  ?

I'd assume some sort of prog rock or folk metal.

Okay, I suppose I'll try following the directions.  Not easy on a Friday night.

This was a shot from about 20 years ago of the Jr. High band kids getting warmed up.  I loved the composition and when I switched it to 8 colors I felt it really made it more dramatic.  Always thought of it like an album cover, so I gave it a funny band name and filed it away in the bowels of my computer.

This one was the end result of a photo of a digitized photo, developed in film and processed on real photo paper as part of a project for my photography class.  Did a series of these vague facial shapes.  I like it because of the ambiguity.  If you don't have a face in mind, it's hard to tell what it is.  Fitting for an album that leaves things to the imagination.

Some form of trippy synth-prog. Maybe a Rick Wright solo project

How funny! I was in a group chat with some friends, my best friend made the comment that we were "Kindred Asses" and I told her that sounded like a good band name then she said "Make an album cover for our band." so I grabbed a sketch pad, made a doodle, scanned it then dinked about in Ulead Photo Express to make it fuzzy and threw it up in the chat. My band:

Reissue of a classic jazz piano album on the Verve label, featuring hard-bop originals and Bill Evans-style interpretations of Broadway show tunes.

(Actually a photo of my late father circa 1960)

A cover I did in 2019, sort of dreamy alt pop rock.

Crap. Forgot to enable voting.
This was a book cover I put together for a book I never finished. Never really finished the cover, either. Probably make a dope electronica cover

This would make a good shoegaze album cover.

I did this as a longbox painting back in the 80's for the CD. You're missing the full black leather jeans and concha belt effect, but I think it holds up OK.
