Manic Mark's Wall Of Graphic Design Bone

We can make your head giant and see through! You'll thank us!

Just point... we will add the stabbed Satan figures later...

Because he lives is no excuse.

Why throw out those old drapes?

GostelSiipz... er... GostelStils... What?

The designer captured the seriousness of The End Times with this cartoon horse and super hero...

The artist gave birth to his first airbrush illustration.

Gloria's hair appeared in a movie with Godzilla and Mothra

They were bludgeoned to death shortly after they arrived at school.

Doing It Right?

It was night. There was this tree. And we had a camera on us.

This illustration goes against conventional wizdum...

The name of the group was changed to "Anything In My Pocket Is Bad".

This tripps me out man!

We asked you to create the worst album cover ever and you did it!

We had this hair brained idea!

Apparently, it ended after the introductions...

We are The Ball Family. Our name is in the shape of a ball!

It's better that no one knows what we look like together.

We could hardly believe our luck... the rug matches our jackets!

Are you ALL sick?

Sorry about your hair.

This is a garden?

Have you been working out?

The CROWNSmen... I get it!

A 70s hotel lobby, an Instamatic... An irresistible combination!

Beige is still considered 4 color printing...

You aren't going anywhere.

We are colorful in a monochromatic sort of way.

Happiness will cost you.

The wife, four girls and pastel outfits. I'm tired and doomed.

Peg and Barbara gave themselves credit for the cover design.

Where else would we place your names?

Thanks for hiring us to design your NEW cover!

Shopping for a record title.

Stalinist Gopel

You want to see your  face an ALL of the ornaments?

Going home to fetch another suit.

Sunshine during a full eclipse. It's a concept piece.

You don't want to overpower your type treatment with a large photo.

Does all gospel art look like this?

The moment when the alien beam immobilized you.

It's like... how BIG is this typeface anyway?!!

It's OK that you all look like giants.

Alive?  I'm just checking before we start the press.

Bill gave himself credit for the cover photo.

Not Nickle One? But what is the actual budget?

From a production standpoint, it is easier to set cartoon children on fire.

Design rule: More is less.

It took a lot of work, but we finally approved this cover.

Unspeakable horror.

But all of your photos look like this.

This was your first attempt at Cubism?

Do you like how I filled up that empty space with type?

Two of me and one's transparent!

You can't blow up a small photo.

Splatter glow! I used a toothbrush!

I think that we've solved the problem of what to do with all these snapshots.

I know, but it's the only photo that was in focus.

Sex sells!

We couldn't afford a real boat.

After we saw the photos, we had to title the album Ladies Choice!

The designer received a credit on the back cover.

The branch on your head makes you look taller.

Purple. Excellent choice!

I was experimenting with film processing chemicals.

We all agreed that the car door was the only place for your name.

You only look small on the cover.

Crash... That's why the jagged border.

The hanging lamp border... why?

That is the only shirt you brought with you?

Do you come apart?

I have no idea what is going on here.

I picked the font because it reminded me of your hair.

Don't worry, a lot of people go with vacation photos.

The Vampire Brides

Here we are... frozen in time!


  1. Hilarious captions to go with these. I'm particularly fond of Lorenzo- The guy in the yellow shirt.

  2. I picked the font because it looked most like your hair! good stuff!
