Artist and music lover Natalie Sharp discovered the Unknown Pleasures of painting her face to look like various album covers, and now she must Remain In The Light lest she be mistaken for a Veckatimest and elicit some Screamadeica from those who catch sight of her in public.
Natalie came up with this fun face painting concept as a way to pay homage to Record Store Day, which took place on April 19th, and she cites the albums painted on her face as inspirational to her art.
Here’s what Natalie had to say about this unique project:
I stupidly thought I could knock these out in a day. Three days later with a bleeding face and being accused of racism after posting my progress on Facebook, I had to stop. These are not my top eight albums, I don’t believe in that crap, but they are eight very inspiring and spectacular albums that I keep returning to. Each face took between 3 – 6 hours to paint. I cried after finishing grizzly bear, I thought it had broken me. I don’t use any stencils its all freehand.
Record Store Day, here is my gift to you.
