I can now reveal the sleeve I designed for this year’s Secret 7″! I created an original linocut and printed it directly onto the record sleeve for Tame Impala’s track ‘The Less I Know The Better’. If you want to know where I got the idea for the image from then watch the video for the song, but be warned it is a bit risque!
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!
Here is the final print for the Cambridge Folk Festival project!
Earlier this year I created a design for the Cambridge Folk Festival. I chose to do a reduction linocut and to experiment with ‘rainbow rolling’!
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.
