Album campaign for Parlophone band Dirty Vegas. The series of sleeves features paintings by New York artist Richard Phillips. Using magazine ads and gentlemens magazines from the 1970’s as his source material, Phillips created a series of large format paintings which bring to mind hand painted murals and billboard art. A number of images were selected that seemed to sum up the idea of ‘Dirty Vegas’. Album sleeve nominated for a Grammy, ‘Best Album Artwork’ category, lost out to a sleeve for the country-girl music trio The Dixie Chicks.
