don't know which half by humphreyhippo

don't know which half

Talk about ideas that didn't quite work!
This is for the album cover challenge.

The wiki band name is: Operation Bumblebee
The Random Quote is: "Half the money I spend on advertising is wasted; the trouble is I don't know which half."

This set me thinking about an old song (whose name eludes me) whose lyrics went something like, "my heart keeps breaking and I don't know which half to keep".
The 'heart' is a foam sponge - which went everywhere when I tried to cut it into shape.
Bit morbid, but there you go. ;)

Have a good weekend!

There is a version without the text on Flickr: http://flic.kr/p/cKtTem
Wow - really awesome idea. I'd buy that album :-)
Love the effect of the hands coming through the texture.

Thats AMAZING! Too clever by half, makes me feel very ashamed of uploading a quick snap!!! Undoubtedly a fav, what a brilliant cover that would make.........have a good weekend :))

Cool. Even the hands have the shape of the heart. Strange that many different cultures far apart see the heart as a person's essence. Here also.

Unbelievably clever. . .

Cool processing :)
August 3rd, 2012  
This is brilliant! And very eye-catching! Another well-executed image, HH!
August 3rd, 2012  
Another great idea! Love the way the "blood" is running over the fingers.

@kwiksilver Fortunately, I remembered to put my big water drip tray underneath before I started. ;)
August 3rd, 2012  
Absolutely a winner - that is amazing work, even if the sponge did get messy. I love the processing work you do, I'm envious :)
August 3rd, 2012  
hmmm, a bit gruesome, but an image you can't help looking at, this is great work, way out of my league, fav for me for originality...
August 3rd, 2012  
Brilliant idea, love it.
August 3rd, 2012  
Clever idea! I like the dripping blood. :O)

Cool album cover!
August 3rd, 2012  
That's very neat!
August 3rd, 2012  
Very effective - morbid or not! I was going to guess molded raspberry sherbet ...
August 3rd, 2012  
I think it's cool
August 3rd, 2012  
Very cool image. think it would be more powerful without the text but it was for the album cover.
August 3rd, 2012  
Excellent image and well staged. A lot of thought and patience went into this ...
August 3rd, 2012  
This is cool and morbid at the same time! Fab processing!
August 3rd, 2012  
Fav… I keep coming back to this, so I think I best fav it
August 3rd, 2012

Brilliant and powerful. This would be an amazing album cover - you could sell this. You amaze me every day! I hope your skills are not being wasted in the dirty-kitchen-work-establishment of your 9-5 job.
August 4th, 2012  
Very creative and a great shot
August 4th, 2012

Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant! The concept, the detail, the processing the colour, it's really....erm...professional H, which sounds a bit lame now I see it written down but I don't know how else to describe it? I love it!
August 4th, 2012  
Amazing shot, brilliant album cover!
August 7th, 2012  
Ooo this is cool - I was just wondering what you used for a heart and then read it! I did a really similar shot on herelast August but with a bauble decoration. I like the liquid you have on the hands in this. Nice touch!
August 8th, 2012  
Wicked cool!
August 8th, 2012
