The Smiths – the singles covers sing

By Installation_72dpi

Thirty of the original thirty-six panels were reproduced or re-imagined and printed onto 7″ sleeves, complete with (random surplus) singles kindly supplied by Max Hambledon from his extensive tours of car boot sales in search of rare grooves.

Each image was drawn in pen and ink, tone added with black watercolour pencil, scanned and converted to duo-tone to match the associated Smiths cover. In order to qualify this as an ‘installation’ (it was an art degree, after all), I sampled the appropriate line from each song and faded these in and out on a constant loop through headphones for that multimedia experience.

Click on the image to see the comic, or each panel may be viewed separately on Flickr.
