Win a ltd. edition print & entry to the album artwork Fantasy 12″ gigs

Next week, Hen’s Teeth Prints, This Greedy Pig & ChoiceCuts present ‘Fantasy 12’, an artwork-focused series of events and an exhibition.

The question asked of designers and record labels behind some of their favourite album covers was:

“If you could release a record from any iconic artist (past or present), what would the cover look like?”

Those asked include Vlad Sepetov, B Plus, Stephen Serato, Cecilia Martinez, Eric Coleman, Paul Diddy, Errol Richardson, Lemi Ghariokwu, Nick Gazin, Shit Robot, Donal Thornton, Delphine Ettinger, James Marsh, Ian Anderson, Dewey Saunders, Jonny Costello and Lewis Heriz.


Collectively, they are responsible for artwork from Kendrick Lamar, Prince, DJ Shadow, Flying Lotus, Lobster Theremin, Mochilla, Luaka Bop Records, William Onyeabor, Fela Kuti, Run The Jewels, DFA Records, All City Records, Hyperdub, Talk Talk, Aphex Twin, Warp Records, Anderson Paak, Jamiroquai and Soundway Records.

They were then asked to come up with the fantasy artwork. The results will be displayed at The Copper House Gallery, Synge Lane, Dublin 8 from October 13th.
