Album covers are as important a part of our favorite records as the music on them is. Many iconic covers have contributed greatly to the success of the records and the legacy of the performers, forever engraining themselves in the collective memories of music lovers.
One of them is Russian photographer Igor Lipchanskiy, who decided to play with the iconic images on some of his favorite album covers. Introducing himself to BoredPanda, the joker said:
“My name is Igor and I live in cold Russia. In between dismantling of an AK-47 assault rifle and training of the home bear, I like to listen to music and when I peer into the cover of the album I find a place for myself there. Half a year ago I published a post how I finish drawing myself near cult covers of musical albums. Since then I have created new images and I want to share them with you!”
Followed by more than 10,000 users, Igor shares his intelligent and hilarious work on his Instagram account @igor.lipchanskiy where he has received loads of positive feedback which has propelled him towards viral stardom.
