Saw this over at emptees http://emptees.com/posts/162028-create-an-instant-band-name-and-album-cover-part-2, and I thought it would be something you guys might get into as well. Here’s the dealio:
1 – Go to “wikipedia.” Hit “random… Read More”
or click http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random
The first random wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 – Go to “Random quotations”
or click http://www.quotationspage.com/random.php3
The last four or five words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.
3 – Go to flickr and click on “explore the last seven days” or click http://www.flickr.com/explore/interesting/7days Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 – Use photoshop or similar to put it all together. Make sure it’s a square. 500 × 500 pixels is ideal.
5 – Post it!
Here are some I did. Don’t know how good at it I am, but it’s pretty fun. Good way to practice composition and typography.
