cher_believeWeek 4 and Julie Powell has given us an album cover to work our magic on. As she says, the original cover does not have a great deal to recommend it.

‘[Cher] reached a new commercial peak in 1998 with the album Believe, whose title track became the biggest-selling single of all time by a female artist in the UK; it features the pioneering use of Auto-Tune, also known as the “Cher effect”.’ Wikipedia

Whether my take has anything to recommend it, I know not! I seem to have continued my penchant for black following my cover for Simon Jones’ film, Moon, although this was mainly dictated by the black & white photograph of Cher from Wikipedia that I’ve used. Since this photo dates from 1989 and the album was released in 1998, I’d guess she had a rib or two removed between the two dates! The font is an interesting one called Heartstrings Regular, which I’ve not used before.

Take care and keep laughing!

  1. Funnily enough, I heard this on the car radio yesterday. Cher was such a natural beauty, it’s a great shame that she interfered with herself to such a degree. Your cover shows her animated and looking happy. Better than the pensive pout on the original.
    Best wishes, Pete. x
