While assembling the album cover Portrait Playoff (One and Two), I considered having a satellite event where the artist portrait was not a photograph, but a painting, drawing, watercolour, stick and ochre, whatever. But that idea did not really mesh with the ‘realistic’ covers, and so was shelved.
Yet those LPs making it through the qualifying rounds were diverse and interesting. I thought fans of cover art might enjoy them.
In which style would you like your portrait rendered?
For myself, I rather like the join-the-dots of the Neil Diamond cover used as the feature image.
