Fun graphic design meme

Terras de Bouro. His new album 'Whose Time has Come' is a melodic fusion of cool smoky jazz with a futuristic techno undertone.

I picked this fun game up at the
Creative Review blog
And so this is my first attempt at creating a sleeve for Flickr’s CD Cover meme.

It’s a simple game:

1. The first article title on this randomly generated Wikipedia page is the name of your band.

2. The last four words of the very last quote from this random page from is the title of your album.

3. The third picture on this page, Flickr’s list of interesting pictures from the past seven days, is your album cover.

However rather than picking a picture from the last link (and upset photographers who haven't given a Creative Commons license to their pictures) I used a photograph from this clever link which generates random images from the most Interesting photos list where the photographer has granted permission to alter and re-use their work, in accordance with their Creative Commons license.

The first image that came up for me from there was, Canopy of the Austrian Centre by Flickr member magnaram.
