Art: a combination of images from terrible-reflection.tumblr.com

With thanks to all of the artists involved, CMG podcast #112 is dedicated to a…well, I won’t say “contest” since there isn’t a prize attached, more a call to our design/art-inclined readers: we’ve got another tremendous Fantasy Covers podcast coming up, and once again we’re looking for artwork.

The ’80s Part Two will feature covers of songs by Paul Simon, This Heat, Opal, Janet Jackson, the B-52s, Elvis Costello/Robert Wyatt, Sparks, Brooooooce, and many more. As for the artwork, we’re looking for a 500×500px image to be the podcast’s cover; our strict no-ALF policy stands, but beyond that we’re open to any concept or approach—original art, collage, photography, something you just tore out of an old Radio Shack catalog, it’s all (potentially) good. Slight preference for no text, or, as with The ’80s Part One, just “CMG.” Please send your submissions and/or questions to sreid@cokemachineglow.com. There isn’t a deadline—again, not a contest—but we’ll be accepting artwork right up until the podcast goes live this spring. (More news on that, including a complete list of artists involved, in early April.)

As thanks in advance, enjoy a mix that also briefly celebrates the ’80s, has been newly updated to remove a 50 second clip of a song in the latter half for disappointing but legit reasons, and will hopefully inspire more submissions than our last artwork, um, “contest” regardless:
