The self-titled Whitesnake album was released in 1987 and with this album they exploded into a worldwide phenomenon. They had been around for quite a while when this album was released but with hits like “Here I Go Again” and “Is this Love” they started filling large arenas. I remember seeing them live on this tour and the show was amazing. The album features the WhiteSnake seal on a marble wall background. I started by stitching the background with multiple colors of abstract rayon thread. The seal was created as a patch with multiple layers of rayon and metallic thread. I was very satisfied with the level of detail in the patch, which was mounted onto the album at the end.
