Inspiration: Logan Walter's Wu Note Project

Pin it button big

In this day and age, you really have to give it up to someone who does something creative for "the fun of it." Especially when it comes out as brilliant as this: Allow me to demonstrate the skills of designer Logan Walters. He made the keen observation that "most of the Wu Tang album art was horrible (ODB's two albums being the only real exceptions)--no offense to the original designers, but as iconic as they might be, they're looking pretty dated these days." So, Walters took it upon himself to create his own versions of all twenty-one covers inspired by Blue Note jazz covers...

Just based on the covers we've seen (and our favorites pictured here), we're hoping that this gesture of presenting them in frames will send a not-so-subtle hint to Walters to please, PLEASE print them as a set once he's done. We'd buy 'em in a heart beat.

On that note, perhaps it's time for us to start our own creative project. As the GZA says, "Time is a terrible thing to waste / So the mind must think at a peaceful pace..."
