When I was on my last year at art school in Warsaw (Academy of Fine Arts) I designed a record cover to obtain my Master of Arts degree. I remember I really got a kick out of doing this. The band I chose for my project was Wieloryb – one of Poland's first industrial noise acts. The theme was ecology and Wieloryb (the word means whale in Polish) suited perfectly. As this was back in 1997 I had to make most of the art by hand using paints, spray paint and collage. Computers were used to a minimum and only at the last phase of designing when I wanted to ad some scanned cliparts etc. I must say it still looks pretty good after all these years.
