I can now reveal the sleeve I designed for this year’s Secret 7″! I created an original linocut and printed it directly onto the record sleeve for Tame Impala’s track ‘The Less I Know The Better’. If you want to know where I got the idea for the image from then watch the video for the song, but be warned it is a bit risque!
The Secret 7″ exhibition is now open! It runs until 1st May 2016 at Sonos Studio, London and is open Tuesdays – Sundays, 10am – 6.30pm. Go and see if you can guess which record sleeve I designed!

I’m excited and surprised that my Secret 7″ record sleeve design is being included in the exhibition at Sonos Studio, London! Apparently this year there were a record number of submissions, which is why I’m surprised I am selected! I’m not allowed to reveal the artwork until after the exhibition, which is from 8th April – 1st May, with the sale day being on 2nd May. Each record is for sale at £50, with the money raised going to support the charity Amnesty International UK.
The record sleeve I designed for Secret 7″ was chosen and purchased by the lady above! I would just like to say thank you to her and to Secret 7″. Although I had a very small part in the exhibition, it has meant a lot to me to be selected. This was the first time my work has been exhibited in London and in such a great place like Somerset House! I hope this post isn’t too sentimental, but I wanted to express how grateful I am! Thank you!
Here is the lino block I carved for my Secret 7″ design!
I can finally reveal my Secret 7″ sleeve! It was number 585, a linocut for ‘Born Slippy’ by Underworld.
There are only 5 more days left to view the Secret 7″ exhibition at Somerset House before the sale day on Monday 4th May! On the sale day all the specially designed sleeves will be for sale at £50 each. Among many great artists and designers there are pieces up for grabs by Yoko Ono, Sir Peter Blake, Sir Paul Smith, Julian Opie, David Shrigley, Martin Parr, Sam Taylor-Johnson, Tatty Devine and Stanley Donwood! As all the artwork is anonymous you could be the lucky person to pick one of these up, and if you pick mine up I would love to hear from you!

Last night I went to the private view of Secret 7″ at Somerset House. My record sleeve design, along with many others, is on display there until 3rd May. It was a nice night and great to have the opportunity to see all the other record sleeves. It was fun trying to guess the artists of the anonymous sleeves! The identity of the sleeve designers will be revealed after the sale day on 4th May 2015. I’m thrilled to be part of this event and it would be great if you are able to go and see it! You can preview all the record sleeves in the Secret 7″ online gallery, see if you can guess which is mine!
