This week’s theme is a little bit late, but its important, damn it! I’m sure you’ve all seen that interesting WACK is SHiT music video by now. And you’ve probably already heard about the rather “simplistic” way that the single was released to the public:
if this is how theyre gonna give it to us then this is how im gonna keep it in my library
no artist name no album art "final" in the title like a project that was completed about an hour ago pic.twitter.com/I91AQMWroU

Now, Poteto may be cool with this presentation, but I’m not. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty anal when it comes to album art. I need to have something, anything visual to appear when I put a song in my music library. Empty album art icons make me cringe. And I know I’m not the only one!
So what is a fan to do when the official release doesn’t even come with that? Get creative, obviously!
So, I want you all to come up with your own album art for WACK is SHiT. It can be simplistic, it can be complex, beautiful, or stupid (preferably stupid though). Whoever’s design I deem the best gets the privilege of being used as the art in my own personal music library. How can you argue with those stakes?
Tweet your designs with the hashtag #WACKisSHiTcoverart and hope Watanabe sees this and hires one of you as his official graphic designer.
