This is the 'Artist Bio Photo' I created this past summer for the AGG Conference 2008 website.


Funny thing is that when I made this I hadn't yet heard about Sleeveface, a similar idea to what I did with my sketchbook, only using vinyl album covers.

An example of 'Sleeveface' -

Sleeveface was begun by a couple of Brits at the beginning of 2008, and it took off in a way that only viral internet things can. It's to the point where there are now thousands of sleeveface-type images on the web, and Sleeveface now has a book and and an ever growing Flickr prescence.

Truth be told, my 'sketchface' variant might be considered a bit of a cheat, in that I colored it in the computer. Still, could something like 'Sleeveface' evolve into 'Sketchface'? Who knows...
