Whackhead Simpson CD Cover

Whackhead’s prank calls are often so provoking they can cause the person on the other line to lose their patience and erupt into a fury. This was the basis on which the concept was developed – “an exploding telephone”. The photograph was styled like a David LaChapelle shoot and the set was completely built from scratch and then burnt to give an authentic feel that an explosion had taken place. Weird and wonderful quirky elements like a porcupine with roasted marshmallows stuck to the ends of its quills appear in the image which make you look at the CD over and over again as you discover new intriguing details.
