Drawings Capture The Insanity of Vinyl + Crate Digging

September 5, 2008

not_able_satisfy.jpg

Ever searched for a way to sum up the madness of crate digging?  An artist and fellow dusty fingered madman has managed to capture all the frustrations and social dysfunctions in a series of drawings entitled "Crate Digging… Don’t Do It."

A bit of fair warning, with titles like, "There’s always someone digging in a better crate", "You won’t be able to satisfy your needs", and "Imaginary records will haunt your sleep", you may be forced to reassess that slight vinyl addiction you’ve developed over the years.

See the entire collection after the jump.

Normally I don’t learn article on blogs, however I wish to say that this write-up very pressured
me to try and do so! Your writing taste has been surprised me.
Thanks, quite great post.
