Unused artwork for Beck!

Mario Hugo’s fantastic work for Beck’s Modern Guilt album, that Interscope decided to pass on. I actually really like the cover art they went with (very classic) but these are really cool to see. After I found these I figured I would google to see who else had already written about them. +KN and changethethought posted about this in July haha.

  • These are all really great. I love the grainy texture in the abstract geometry of the last few, but wow, those wood block typography pieces are amazing.

  • Yeah, I remember these. They are rad.

  • This is incredible!
    I can see why its probably not so appropriate for a Beck cover, but in its own right it’s a beautiful piece of work. Lovely

  • These hurt my eyes they are so good.

  • great album art…really nice.

  • interesting! hey Jeff, how do you change your icon next to the time stamp? i see all these people with crazy ones and i’m so confused!

    This is great, I can’t believe this got passed over and they went with that terrible cover for Modern Guilt!

    The version they used looked like it took about 20 minutes, I thought they must have done it in a rush!

    I did but a t-shirt when I saw Beck’s last tour which must have been inspired by this, just not anywhere near as good.

Drones Capture Disparity Between Rich and Poor in South Africa

Lines6

Cape Town-based photographer Johnny Miller reveals distinct lines between rich and poor in a striking (and unsettling) series of photographs. Taken using drones, the aerial perspective presents the harsh reality of past Apartheid policies and the continued disparity in a way that can’t be ignored.
