The Velvet Underground Revised Vinyl Cover

I reprinted this and took some better photos. Refined the whole project. I am really pleased with how this turned out. I am happy that I was able to refine one of my manny explorations. At the end of the project, I was able to focus on exactly how the music sounded to me because I discarded all of the extra information in my previous explorations. I chose a corrugated gold for the sleeve because it translated the sort of arrogant, excessive, high-art scene that this was created around.  The colors are putrid to reflect the content of the songs which are both about the underbelly of life. There is a movement present on both sides of the cover that I believe reflects the abrasive qualities of the song. There is a sort of haunting presence of something that once was, or is still there, but not completely visible. The corrugated gold is also a reflection of the brittle, shrill strings that are present in both songs.
