Album Cover Game

Post by somitomi »

I'm gonna revive another one, because I think I managed to reconstruct the rules of the variant I so fondly remember. The goal here is to create a convincing album cover from random elements. What makes this fun is how simple it can be, album covers are a truly free form of expression with the only limitation being the traditional square shape.
  1. Go to Wikipedia and click the “random article” link. The title of the article is the name of your band.
  2. Go to "wikiquote" and click the “random page” link. A snippet from the very last quote on the page is the title of your album. You have some creative freedom here to make it fit together.
  3. Click on this secret "Explore last 7 days" link, because you can't find it on the flickr home page. Third picture on the page is the basis for your album cover.
  4. Use an image manipulation method of your choice to put it all together and post the result along with the source material in this thread.
I'll start us off

This one was done really quickly, because the photo itself feels like an album cover photo on its own.

I don't think this is a competition and I like your contributions anyway.
