Vinyl Art is bad ass! | Cool things made Cooler

Have you ever said to your self "Self...I really love the giant sleeves that records come in because they are so giant and can hold copious amounts of artwork...way more than a CD and infinity more than an mp3. But I am just missing something...something like bad ass artwork right on the effing platter itself dammit...all of that wasted space...THERE HAS GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY!!!"? If the answer is "sorta...I guess, maybe" firstly you are having way to long of a conversation with your self and you probably see someone about that, secondly your odd internal monologue has been answered by an artist right here in of Phoenix. He goes by the name of Daniel Edlen and what he can do with white acrylic paint his hands and vinyl is pretty amazing.

Check out his site and if you don't think that shit is the tops then you really DO need to see someone about your not having a soul.

Here are galleries you can currently check out his work in person:

Wild About Music - 115 East 6th St., Austin, TX 78701
Raw Style - 1511 Montana Ave., Santa Monica, CA 90403
Red Dog Gallery - 812 N. 3rd St. Phoenix, AZ 85004

If you have a piggy bank filled with money you have been saving for a rainy day why not bust it open and buy a custom piece for your rumpus room? Go on you deserve it.
