I’ve done this on Facebook and Twitter, but I figured why not do it here as well. As many of you know, I spent hours and hours Photoshopping my face into Madonna’s MDNA album cover for the cover of my year-end CD. I even got especially brave and moved the letters around and crafted my own “C” from a “D” to spell “DANC” where it originally said “MDNA.” My friend Matt warned me that it would be a difficult process, and damn, it was. What was once a gorgeous album cover became something that nightmares are made of. I think it was the red lips that push it over the edge – and for that I owe a huge debt of gratitude to my Facebook friend Holly who truly finished the project with style when my limited Photoshop skills no longer would suffice.
Well anyway, I entered the finished product into Idolator’s “Recreate Your Favorite Album Cover of 2012” contest. The grand prize is an iPad mini. Truly, this is an inspired idea – there were so many possibilities, three of which were illustrated by Idolator editors. After a little nudging, I risked public humiliation and did submit my MDNA cover. I know that I’m biased, but I’ve been underwhelmed by the other entries. And because of this, I’m asking for your vote.
Follow THIS LINK. You’ll need to scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the entries. Go hover over my picture and there will be a little “Vote” icon appear in the upper right hand corner. All I have to offer in return is my undying gratitude. And the promise to not Photoshop my face onto this, which would have been a million times more disturbing.
