Album Cover Challenge 11

posted November 12th, 2012
Album Cover Challenge 11 is now open! Here’s what you do:

1. Go to http://www.wikipedia.org/ and hit “random article” on the left. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2. Go to http://www.quotationspage.com/ and hit “random quote” on the left. Scroll down. The last 4-6 words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your album.
3. Now go take a photo that fits with your album!
4. Use your favorite editing program to create your cover.
5. Share your image (or images, you can do as many as you like) with us by tagging it with “albumcoverchallenge11”!

This challenge will run until midnight Friday, November 23rd (US Central time) and then I will post the top five for you to vote on. Feel free to share your band and titles here on this thread as well as your photos.

You can use a previously shot image or one you shoot just for this competition, but you MUST use your OWN images!

Hope you have fun with it!
