    So I was inspired by the Eminem subreddit to draw 311's album covers in some unique way. I got some art supplies, a blank piece of paper, and then I grabbed my phone to open up images of their album covers.

    That's when I realized how fucking boring/stupid their album covers are. Most of the time they're either impossibly boring or schiziphrenic in their design. Try drawing Grassroots. That's as easy as smudging your dirty fingers on a piece of paper. Try drawing Evolver. That's like a dedicated week long project and for what?

    Which 311 covers do you think are actually worth drawing?

    311 probably could have really made it big, had they not ignored the key "stuck inside and for some reason drawing their album cover" demographic.

    GLAD YOU ASKED THIS QUESTION. APPROXIMATELY 1.5 YEARS AGO I BEGAN A PAINSTAKING RECREATION OF THE MOSAIC ALBUM COVER ON THE CEILING OF A NEARBY ABANDONED CHURCH. THE BUILDING HAS ASBESTOS AND A MYSTERIOUS TRACK RECORD OF HOMELESS PEOPLE GOING INSIDE BUT NEVER LEAVING. ANYWAY, I'M IN THERE AT DAWN 7 DAYS A WEEK WHEN THE LIGHT FIRST HITS THE DUST FILLED WINDOWS. I CAN'T REALLY SEE WHAT I'M DOING BECAUSE THERE IS NO ELECTRICITY AND I HAVE GLAUCOMA BUT I'M DOING A HIGHLY DETAILED RECREATION OF EACH FAN-SUBMITTED FRAME. I STARTED ON THE SECTOR MAKING UP P-NUT'S WEIRD HANDS AND KIND OF LOST MYSELF IN THE ART. CURRENTLY, I HAVE COMPLETED FOUR FAN SUBMITTED PHOTOS AND, DOING THE MATH, I'LL NEED ANOTHER 150,000 YEARS TO RECREATE THE LOOK 311 WOULD APPRECIATE AND I CRAVE. TO EXPEDITE THE PROCESS I HAVE BEGUN RECRUITING HOMELESS PERSONS FROM ACROSS THE TRI-STATE AREA, PROMISING MUCH AND DELIVERING EVERYTHING. BUT TO ANSWER YOUR QUESTION, JUST APPRECIATE THE COVER ART ON YOUR PHONE, LISTEN TO THE MUSIC, MURDER A DRIFTER AND LOVE YOUR LIFE.

    I think a hyper minimalistic reworking of the Evolver cover would be pretty cool.

    Soundsystem would be awesome and pretty doable. Besides those lines in the background.

    I think Uplifter would be fun to make. I actually like that album cover....just not the album.
