Logan Walters – Wu-Note Style

I came across the creative work of Logan Walters some time ago while doing research for my first album cover art exhibition – RAP.

So, I’m up late clicking link after link and stumble across his jazz (Blue Note) inspired Wu-Tang covers which immediately struck a nerve.  Not because of me being a huge fan of Wu-Tang, which I am, and not because of me being a huge jazz fan, which I am – as I was pretty much raised on the music, but because of the combination of the two and how intelligently the designs were done. 

Since then, I’ve kept Logan in the back of my mind as one of those cats I wanetd to work with at some point and when it came time to do my JAZZ album cover art exhibition for The ClassicsLogan’s name popped up as someone that I wanted to interview. Now, of course I understand that these aren’t jazz albums but that they’re inspired by Reid Miles’ Blue Note album covers is the relevance to my project and with JAZZ being my final exhibition I wanted to do some different things with this one.  Take this as a sign of what’s to come.  Enjoy the read below:
