Album covers transformed with animation

The animations provide a new perspective with the iconic artwork

We love Tumblr, where you can find cool Tumblr blogs (opens in new tab) on everything from typography (opens in new tab) to still life photography (opens in new tab), and from food art (opens in new tab) to paper art (opens in new tab). And there's some pretty off-the-wall stuff too - like this fun art project transforming iconic album covers from the likes of Bowie, The Smiths and The Beastie Boys with a quirky little dash of animation.

All of the album covers are carefully chosen and humorously animated by Mr. Dormouse (opens in new tab) - we're particularly enjoying the offering above.

It's a brilliant insight into the original album artwork (opens in new tab), whilst providing a new perspective and some light relief on a stressful day. See more of Mr. Dormouse's creations below...
