Yes, another thing on doctored album art — but this one is slightly different!


You’ve Sleevefaced. Now take the Challenge by “extending album art” — i.e., get all recontextual by placing the cover image on a larger canvas, thus creating some jarring/funny/insightful/idiotic other meaning. For example, Simon and Garfunkel are running from a car on the cover of Sounds of Silence, and the Kool-Aid Man is bursting through The Wall. Some of these are, naturally, pretty silly acts of vandalism, but quite a few are really ingenious.
