Writing/Essay/Journal
As both a musician and an artist, Tom Hazelmyer has created album covers that are works of art and that reflect the music. He wants his work to arouse emotion and move people out of their comfort zone. Write a statement which defines your aesthetic. In other words, what is your idea of what is appealing or beautiful? What makes you like a piece of music or a work of art?

Activity
Pick a piece of music and design an album cover that expresses the feeling you get from it. Using his linocuts as inspiration, make a print. You can use a Styrofoam tray and incise it with a pencil or you could make an old-fashioned potato print like you may have done when you were younger.
