FAKE RECORDS! Oh my word I love them so much. Glossy paint on cut wood, and some of the best titles in town! I was lucky enough to see this series, by LA based artist/illustrator Mark Todd, in progress. I stopped by Mark’s studio when I visited LA in February, and fell madly in love with his totally fake record collection… or maybe it was ‘Nick Sweet’ and his mustache that made my heart race {although, I have a feeling he’d really mess things up}. All of these pieces are currently hanging in, “DON’T GO TO HELL WITHOUT SAYING GOODBYE” at the Webb Gallery in Texas. The show just opened yesterday and will be up until June 2, 2017. Go if you can because the photos do not do these hit records justice!

    Super clever. Love these! Good find. I’m in LA. Mark’s name is familiar to me, but not the work. Thank you!

    Really cool and good finds. Too bad Texas is at the other side of the world 🙂

    Such a great folk art feel to these. They remind me of when Howard Finster did the Talking Heads album covers. Love it.
