Want a shot at $50 plus a free copy of my solo album and even more? Look no further than to Dirrrty Joe. My solo album "From The Ashes" will be released in 2012. There is one piece missing... THE ALBUM COVER ART! I'm a badass with Photoshop, however what I'm looking for for this cover is beyond my techniques. To which I turn to you, the fans, for your assistance. I'm looking for one of you, yeah YOU, to design for me an album cover. This is what I'm looking for. The title "From The Ashes" came as a submission from my boy Hauseu from Shades of Interpretation. To me, the title is a fine description of my recent fallouts in my personal life. Losing my daughter, being teased and disrespected because of my disability, losing 2 members from my first project Apokalyptik, leaving 3vilution, abuse from my childhood, dealing with countless drama, legal troubles, crazy religious fanatics and city officials shutting down my shows, being constantly hated on for what I do in music, and last but not least, being the DIRRRTIEST player in the game. These are the main ideas I'm looking for in the cover. The legendary phoenix bird in SKELETAL FORM, without the flames, burnt feathers, melted skin, charcoal skeleton, rising from a pile of ashes. Everyone knows when the phoenix dies, it bursts into flames and is reborn from the ashes. THIS COVER CAN BE MADE WITH REPLICAS OF THE PHOENIX SKELETON IN A PILE OF ASHES TAKEN WITH A PHOTO CAMERA, HANDDRAWN, PHOTOSHOPPED, OR EVEN HEAVILY ANIMATED. How it's done does not matter. What does matter are these: THE ARTISTIC QUALITY OF THE COVER THE PIXEL QUALITY OF THE COVER THE AMOUNT OF TIME USED TO MAKE THE COVER Now that's explained, here's the details of what you need to do in order to qualify.
