This was one of my favorites in the series to create. The cover makes no mention of the band or the title of the album, it is simply a photograph of a hand crushing an egg. I wanted to mimic different textures with this album cover so I started by stitching the arm and hand using multiple shades of rayon and polyester thread. I then used glitter fabric appliqués for the egg and for the fingernails. The fabric was stitched and then laser cut directly on the album. To represent the exploding egg I appliquéd clear vinyl onto the cover and embellished it with more thread. The clear material added further dimension to this outstanding album cover by the Yeah, Yeah, Yeah's.
