Weekly Photo Challenge: Cover Art

This week’s Photo challenge is: Cover Art. The idea is to offer up a photo that would grace a music album or book cover or something similar. Personally, I think the genius of this style was John Berg who did the poetic yet simple cover albums for the band, Chicago. Then again, I think Roger Dean made my favorite albums ever. Alternatively, John Berkey is probably my favorite science fiction artist of all time. None of these were photos, but I admire their view of the world. Here are my ideas for album and book covers.

Steely Dan revival album: “St. Louis In My Soul.”

Blues Traveler album: “Hobo Road.”

Neil Gaiman book cover: “Cactus Man.”

About EagleAye

I like looking at the serious subjects in the news and seeking the lighter side of the issue. I love satire and spoofs. I see the ridiculous side of things all the time, and my goal is to share that light-hearted view.
