Secret 7" Selection! YAY!

With Record Store Day 2012 behind us I can finally reveal that one of the pieces of artwork I designed and submitted to Tanlenthouse's great initiative, Secret 7" was successfully selected. My design entitled "It's a Wonderful Surprise" was hand picked by non-other than The Cure's Robert Smith to be one of the 7" record sleeves for a special release of Friday I'm In Love.

My artwork was produced into an actual one-of-a-kind 7" record sleeve and was on display at the Idea Generation Gallery in Shoreditch, London where it was purchased by a mystery buyer (who has impeccable artistic taste, If I do say so myself). Every penny profited from the sale of the exclusive vinyl records went to the Teenage Cancer Trust charity.


I am including some pictures of the exhibition opening taken by the folks at Secret 7" Big thanks to Kevin King for giving me permission to use the pics.
