Thrown Out with the Bathwater by iTunes



I was thrilled to stumble across the above while clicking around on iTunes this morning, because I did the illustrations and design for this Negativland/Chumbawamba CD back in 1999, as well as creating the "educational bonus" hinted at in the review. But then I realized, well, there goes all that artwork out the window, and what you're left with is 1/11th (!) of my design reduced to a tiny, 170 x 170 pixel square. It made me whistful. Whistful!

Luckily, the real, physical version is still easily available for a mortifyingly low price. Learn how anarchism helped the adorable Roly-Polies, who look suspiciously like Teletubbies (it's all a total coincidence, I swear!), achieve great tasting coffee!

Standardization! Standardization. Standardization? Standardization!

Just FYI, after you told me you did the artwork for this album was when I decided you were totally cool and I have to make an effort to keep track of what you are creating. Hell, the best mass-market thing I ever did was designing the bar over the O on the Sprint FONCARD logo. Bleh.
