Randomness



If you haven't tried this, it's a must for designers and artists!

1 - Go to "wikipedia." Hit “random”
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.

My first and second attempt with this process. I found it interesting how both images included stunning scenery and water. Also, the first one was very feminine in nature and the second male-oriented. Let me know if you give it a try.

I feel a lot of zen looking at this image.

Your photo shop technique is something worthwhile to follow
