Artwork for "Don't Think" remix contest?  Reply with quote  

It's been a long time since we did a remix contest. Over a year I think.
I figure this song would be good to remix as I'd like to consider having the winning entry on my next mixtape. However, before we kick off the official contest I'd like to have an image to accompany it.

Anyone want to give this a shot? If so, please make it a square image and try to include this text:

"Don't Think"
No Bird Sing w/ Sage Francis
SFR Remix Contest

There's no need to use photos of us, but here is the NBS press photo in case you want it: http://www.strangefamousrecords.com/media/nobirdsing_pressphoto_300dpi_650px_V1.jpg

Here is the SFR logo:

If you're not registered to this forum or you don't want to post it here, please send your artwork submission to strangefamous(at)gmail.com

Thanks!

Got this idea and made a quick sketch:

If it's something to run with i'll put time into cleaning it up.
or maybe something to get this ball rolling...

What program did you use for that? It's reminding me of MS Paint but it's obviously a bit better than that. Damn, I miss MS Paint.

ANYWAY...your sketch grossed me out a bit, Jeff. And that's pretty cool. haha. However, I'd like to go with something a bit more iconic or simple to make space for the words if possible. The whole stiletto heel thing got my mind reeling. I wonder if something as simple as the following image (or a rendition of it) would make enough sense in regard to the title and theme of the song:

Or...or...if you can maybe just having the heel going into the brain (no eyes or face on the brain.) I think there's definite potential in that. I just want to make sure the image is recognizable when viewed in a thumbnail format as that's how most people will be introduced to it.

haha, that foot-heel is way grosser than the sketch.

Using photoshop... think it's the no shading/ texture that makes you think of MS paint. I miss those MS paint jobs too..

thought the eyes could convey some emotion/ distinguish it from a grey puddle, but agree it's a bit much. got that feeling from the song...

think it's the angle/ composition too, maybe a side view would read better..

Getting a cat tomorrow... but I'll def mess with it some more, make it more 'sleek'

What a fantastic choice of a song for a SFR remix contest. It's been a while! I can't contribute to the artwork side, I'll definitely do my best on the redux!

Can we pretend this song is about bloody brains? Because I seemed to think so anyway... Just thought I'd give it a shot but all I came up with is the bloody brain. *shrugs*

Huh. This could work. You could put that bloody brain NBS image where the SFR face is, remove the part that says "records" and then just center all of the text. That could work really well as a thumbnail image.
