Secret 7″ Private View

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Last night I went to the private view of Secret 7″ at Somerset House. My record sleeve design, along with many others, is on display there until 3rd May. It was a nice night and great to have the opportunity to see all the other record sleeves. It was fun trying to guess the artists of the anonymous sleeves! The identity of the sleeve designers will be revealed after the sale day on 4th May 2015. I’m thrilled to be part of this event and it would be great if you are able to go and see it! You can preview all the record sleeves in the Secret 7″ online gallery, see if you can guess which is mine!
