This artwork was submitted to the Talent House competition to design a cover for Noah and the Whale's single 'Old Joy'.
It was one of the submissions selected by the band from over 200 shortlisted and was made into a limited edition cover for their single.
It went into an exhibition at the Idea Generation Gallery, Shoreditch, London along with artwork for a variety of bands listed below. Pleasingly all 25 editions were purchased on Record Store Day, April 21st 2012 and all proceeds went to the charity, Teenage Cancer Trust.
Talent House ran this competition in conjunction with Secret 7", a project combining music and art in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust. Seven bands and recording artists (Noah and The Whale, Florence + The Machine
, The Cure, DJ Shadow, Ben Howard
, Bombay Bicycle Club
) invited creatives to design the artwork for a seven inch vinyl sleeve inspired by one of their songs. The project culminated in 700 unique vinyl sleeves displayed in Idea Generation Gallery in London the week leading up to Record Store Day 2012. On Record Store Day each of the vinyls at the gallery were available to purchase with all of the profits going to Teenage Cancer Trust.
Many thanks to everyone who supported my entry :)
