Beck’s Music Inspired Art 2009

Beck’s asked 10 Illustrators including McBess, Hellovon, Kid Acne, Si Scott, and Laura Jackaman to re-think the best albums of the last 40 years (gleaned from Pitchfork lists). Now the project is open to the public to contribute and complete the collection of 100.

Head over here to get involved.

    Awesome! love the beatles and interpol ones!

    aw if only they went back 50 years…’Let It Be’ was definitely not The Beatles’ best work! but as for the album cover…the reworked illustration makes me sad. :( the artwork was supposed to be stark, like “this is the end.” and that illustration is kind of…a joke. and Yoko is in there, too. ridiculous…

    Interpol and Fleet Foxes, however, look good!

    Wow nice. I like all of them, but I like the last one best. It almost looks like there’s someone with a big nose, a long arm, big head amongst the twigs, and birds. The first one is also nice. Why am I being so selective? They’re all wicked.

    Anyone else see anything as described above?

    No, no Jeff it is not, tis my reading and over excitement that got the best of me there.

    The Antony and the Johnsons one would be my fave as well…save for the fact that they spelled it wrong…ouch. Great illustration though.

    Favourite has to be “Let It Be”.

    Some of the other designs are a bit more iconic but it’s just so fun. On top of that, it’s reminded me of that excellent Beatles animation that kicks off their recent Guitar Hero game.
