Today is the day! Hooray! Yes, today is the day I talked about in my last post on the British band Los Campesinos!; the day that their album Hello Sadness finally comes out! Now, I love Los Campesinos! cover art. I think they are always very interesting. Here, let me show you (kudos if you know what that’s from):
Anyways, I love these covers. I wanted to talk about this because, well, I thought it would be fun to imitate the style of art myself and design my own cover for Hello Sadness.

Plus, it’s interesting to challenge yourself to draw in a different way. So here is my version:

Alright, well I’m going to give you a short list of my must listen to Los Campesinos! songs before going to listen to the new album in all of its glory. Then, last but not least, I will post the actual cover picture. Have a splendarific day (and I don’t mean the fake sugar sweetener)!

1/4. Blame It On The Trains – Art Brut
(I know this isn’t a Los Campesinos! song but I felt so guilty for leaving this band out of my post yesterday, and I think you’ll notice a similarity to Los Campesinos! in it, anyways.)
