Album art created with the Instagram iPhone app
Many of you folks may already know that Apelad, the highly talented artist and creator of Laugh-Out-Loud Cats, created the fantastic Steve Jobs-inspired album cover for Beeps and Smudges. When I first started work on the album, it was going to be a download only thing, so I never planned out anything further than a cover. When I finally decided to create physical copies of the album, I couldn’t wait to work up some art for the packaging.
In keeping with the “album made with iPad apps” theme, I took screenshots of many of my favorite apps and then filtered them with Instagram’s Apollo and X-Pro II apps. I love how the final art fits with the project.
