Florence & The Machine’s “Secret 7” Vinyl Design Competition” – My Favourite Entries


Apparently the voting for Florence & The Machine’s Secret 7” vinyl design competition was over, before I could check out all the entries, but now that I finally found the time, I’m gonna share my favourites. To be honest, I am really surprised about how good some of them are. Props to all the artists involved!

The Giant Robot 2 (GR2) presents: YEAR OF THE DRAGON – an art exhibition featuring Dragons!
