Muppet-themed art based on R. Crumb's "Cheap Thrills" cover


Marc Palm, did a swell job with this muppet themed tribute to R. Crumb's cover for Janis Joplin's "Cheap Thrills" LP. (UPDATE: Here's a large version of the artwork.)

For this show [Muppet Rawk II group show at Ouch My Eye Gallery] artists had to take an existing rock album cover and re-image it with Jim Henson's Muppets. You could use any Muppet and it the art had to be 12" x 12".

When I got to join in on this I searched a little bit for some cool covers. The previous show had some gems in them see here. I knew that I had to do something really cool. So when I ran across Cheap Thrills over and over in lists of the "best rock covers ever". Someone had to do this cover with Muppets! I wasn't sure if I could really do it, but I thought I'd bite off more than I could chew and do it myself.
