I am very happy and surprised that my Secret 7″ sleeve sold for £91.98, which is a lot more than I’d hoped for!
Last week I visited the Secret 7″ exhibition at Sonos Studio, London. My work was included in the show. I really enjoyed the exhibition, it was even better than last year and in a great venue!
I’m excited and surprised that my Secret 7″ record sleeve design is being included in the exhibition at Sonos Studio, London! Apparently this year there were a record number of submissions, which is why I’m surprised I am selected! I’m not allowed to reveal the artwork until after the exhibition, which is from 8th April – 1st May, with the sale day being on 2nd May. Each record is for sale at £50, with the money raised going to support the charity Amnesty International UK.
The record sleeve I designed for Secret 7″ was chosen and purchased by the lady above! I would just like to say thank you to her and to Secret 7″. Although I had a very small part in the exhibition, it has meant a lot to me to be selected. This was the first time my work has been exhibited in London and in such a great place like Somerset House! I hope this post isn’t too sentimental, but I wanted to express how grateful I am! Thank you!
Here is the lino block I carved for my Secret 7″ design!
I can finally reveal my Secret 7″ sleeve! It was number 585, a linocut for ‘Born Slippy’ by Underworld.
There are only 5 more days left to view the Secret 7″ exhibition at Somerset House before the sale day on Monday 4th May! On the sale day all the specially designed sleeves will be for sale at £50 each. Among many great artists and designers there are pieces up for grabs by Yoko Ono, Sir Peter Blake, Sir Paul Smith, Julian Opie, David Shrigley, Martin Parr, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Tatty Devine and Stanley Donwood! As all the artwork is anonymous you could be the lucky person to pick one of these up, and if you pick mine up I would love to hear from you!
