Gorillaz Album Cover by MMousse Gorillaz Album Cover by MMousse
Computer Applications Course: Fall 2010

Our first assignment of the year.
Basically: Pick an artist of choice (in my case the band Gorillaz) and design an album cover based on your own interpretation of the music themes and essence.

I based this design on the new Plastic Beach album. I don't why I thought of this. But whenever I listen to the album, I'm always placed under some calm spell of ocean waves...and...apparently koi fish swimming out of my headphones.

Oh and be gentle. This was my first try at Illustrator :D

Gah I'm so torn with this image.
I love the Gorillaz (however not so much Plastic Beach, I'm a fan of their older work) but I hate apes as a species - just can't stand the stuff - but I also love Koi fish! haha, you see my problem?
But cool work :) Congrats on the DD.

For your first try with Illustrator you've done quite well. Hell for your 100th time with Illustrator you've done quite well. I applaud this image and think that Gorillaz should option it for an album of theirs. :)

I feel delighted to have come across this & pleased this Gorillaz-inspired work is a daily dev on my born day. I'm a serious music fan. Gorillaz is easily one of my love joys. Albarn pwns!

Seriously, the work is sensational. It looks like a brown paper genius moment. And, the fact that you've applied the imagery of koi fish swimming in air after flying from the outer portion of the earpiece from what looks like Skullcandy headphones(not typing that it is, just that it draws the connection towards me... Pun intended)is just gallops ahead of what I usually run across in person. But, that it pulls that up in your mind and you can nerly see it outworldly is fantastic.

Easily put: I love it and proud that I have it :+fav:'d, now!
