If you aren't a member of designers.mx you should really join. I am seriously inspired by all of the work that people are putting up. You do have to be invited to be a "mixer" but thats ok, because you can just listen to the mixes while looking at all of the beautifully designed covers.
[My goal for the next few months is to get to be invited}
I am really into this cover/and the mix by Justin David Cox. From a glance it appears to be a photo, but NUH UH! its a hand drawn image with a sweet burlap texture. very smart.
