​Created a series of album cover designs through mixed mediums using 12" record sleeves as my canvas.

Record covers are 12", a beautiful surface for the artwork to be appreciated and recognized. When the industry switched over to CD’s, the 5-inch surface lost its meaning and significance. In todays generation, the most convenient way to listen to music is digitally, which is accompanied by a digital album cover. The covers lost the quality of being malleable to have the opportunity to flip a record over to listen to the other side, or reading the liner notes on the inside jacket. Instead of shrinking the cover to fit the smaller surfaces, that represent CD and then the smallest being digital, my concept was effective in highlighting the loss of art from one album cover medium transition to the next.
