Today's random goodness is an interview with Yolanda Cuomo, designer of album covers for 'Bright Red' and 'The Ugly One with the Jewels', the 'In Our Sleep' single and the poster for the 'Moby Dick' performances. She told ArtDesignCaf√© about the fascinating process of co-operating with Laurie Anderson on her visual image in the 90s. At the end of the article, you can find Laurie's portrait that was created on the basis of Yolanda Cuomo's draft above.
