Secret 7"

I'm very excited to be part of this year's Secret 7" exhibition, and I'd like to share my design with you.

I'd like to, but that would defeat the object of the project!

My love for visual art is equalled only by my love for its sonic cousin, music (see also my comic Hitsville UK) and Secret 7" is an ingenious way of combining both and raising funds for charity.

The organisers have got 7 artists or bands to release new 7" versions of their songs, and invited artists (a mixture of famous bods and open submissions) to design the record covers. They then print 700 one-off covers (100 for each record) and sell each record for £45 on Record Store Day.

The twist is that the artwork on each cover doesn't explicitly tell you which record it is or who the artist is, so you only find out once you've bought the record.

You can browse all the designs on the Secret 7" website, and peruse them all in person on April 12th and 13th Downstairs at Mother, 10 Redchurch St, London, E2 7DD.

See anything you like? Recognise anyone's style? Mine's up there but I can't tell you which!

You can part with your hard-earned cash on Record Store Day, April 19th and it all goes to the brilliant charity Warchild.
