It has been quite a while since I have had anything to write about other than David Shrigley or Banksy record and CD covers. A couple of months ago, however, I saw an advert for a 2018 album with cover art by Andy Warhol that I had missed. The band Third Eye Blind (or 3EB) had released an EP on vinyl called Thanks for Everything and used one of Andy Warhol’s Skull paintings as the backdrop.
Andy Warhol is said to have bought a human skull in a flea market in Paris in 1975 and made a series of still lives of it in 1976.
Warhol even made drawings of the skull and was photographed with the skull on his head or on his shoulder.
The Thanks for Everything cover had a different skull image on the rear cover reworked to look like street art.
So this is the latest addition to my Warhol cover collection.
