Yah man. Up to you.
Maybe you could use it for your Japan release.

Really,what you need is you, or something to represent you. And 3 elements, for instance, a cup, a record and a glove. Have 3 spaced evenly to one side, reflect to the other, for the mirror image.

Have some type of background and a crazy ass font.

Bling bling.



Edit.
Actualy what I said is totally not true. There is no formula beyond crappy photoshop techniques and some diamonds somewhere. Man that stuff is terrible.

But good.

Edit.
I'd make the "staycation" white, and in fact, double it up, place a black copy underneath, moved down and left for some shadow pop! Pops.

the Dr. Dooom is one of my favourite Kool Keith albums and album covers.  The reverse with "The Diesel Truckers" image is pretty special too.  Not to mention the "Robbie Analog" promo on the inside.  CD came in a clear orange jewel case.... all out killer package. And of course, Keith was probably hating on P&P at the same time like he usually does...  Truth be told he had a few insane/awesome covers back then.  Sex Style completely blew my mind when I first saw it.  Had no idea how to deal with that look, even though I already knew most of the music.

 

I agree, Pen & Pixel are "so bad, they're great" and just plain deserver respect for being those dudes who really captured an era (or at least part of one).  As Sunny said, they put in their work and were pretty damn original when they first came out.  Still, it's all pretty horrific, visually speaking, in the context of the history of album art or design in general.  But got to give it up for any body who smashes the rules, as it where, and takes over the way they did.  They were so literal and honest with the imagery.  As fake as the composite images were, they were completely real to that era, and the artists they worked for.  Now it seems hard to pull that off without looking instantly sarcastic.  But then, it was real.

 

Plus... I think they just picked up where pre-photoshop covers like "It's A Big Daddy Thang" left off...

Easily top 3 Kool Keith. The jacket design, the ridiculous shots fired at Bobby Digital especially, cracks me up to this day. Not to mention the fact that the spine is inexplicably labelled upside down and backwards. always throws me, like the man himself.
