Anyone up for a collab? My availability is going to be limited for the next few hours, but if you're interested, feel free to send me a PM.

I have a great idea for this, but it involves text

C'mon, how is everyone wanting to create a vinyl cover or CD case gonna do represent that without any text?

In my head I can see a stylized phonograph, with the speaker in the shape of a dragon (cause dragons are always cool) and flaming musical notes coming out.

Maybe this will be the week I finally get off my butt and submit.

We're looking for some kind of nod to devices that the music is stored on, so for instance an old radio would not fit that. However boomboxes and Walkman's both had cassette players, so you could potentially make the design on topic using one of these devices. Just make sure it's clear that there's some kind of out of date music storage device involved.

I'm interpreting the theme "retro audio" as precluding MP3/downloadable audio players

This is correct, no MP3 players.

The ads are making me giggle. :D "convert tapes and records to mp3!" Go, google ads, go!

Looks good, but I'm going to take you claim of "better" with a grain of salt. It would take a lot to beat a taco de suadero from Tacos El Gordo in San Diego.

I have a program called sketchbook that I use (also use a wacom tablet). Its a very limited program, but it great for roughing concepts out quickly and successfully.

Haha, you guys have finally pushed me into the habit of only ever checking the new derby thread with lunch already on my plate. It's just too hard any other way.

Anyhoo, I have a few ideas kicking around, but my plagiameter keeps making that beeping noise that can only mean I am right about to start sketching a design that has been printed in five places already.

Too much bread, man! You're paying for bread! I love a good pizza, but that much crust is just criminal. I'm sure it's tasty, but come up here to Upstate NY some time for proportional awesomeness from Ruggierio's.

Yup, I live in Colorado, home of Beau Jo's and the infamous demon DIA horse "Blucifer." Typically if the wife and I want good pizza we head up to Idaho Springs.

I'm mulling over two concepts, input appreciated.
The first is a Victorian dude bobpping to a small Victrola, held on shoulder as if it were a boom-box.
The second is a Victorian lady boogying out to her Victrola.

Ah yes, that terrifying horse.

I used to go to Idaho Springs pretty frequently as a kid and we'd pin up our napkin drawings every time, then when the location on Colorado Boulevard opened up we started going to that one too.

Damn, now I miss Beau-Jo's since I don't live there anymore. Mehhhh-moreeees.

Not sure which one I'll pursue...

No MP3 players depicted at all? What if one was juxtaposed with a cassette and/or vinyl?

Lol! Yes, definitely better with a bite out of it.
For the thread - maybe have it weaving itself into some kind of apparel? I'd say a Bolero jacket, if it was OK to title the music. But with no text...
