Word from the frustrated cover designer, direct to Idolator:
“Neither weed nor Photoshop were used in the creation of the cover. Say what you will about the aesthetics of the coverI could care less about thatbut the idea that one could light up a joint and make that cover happen in Photoshop shows a total lack of understanding of both weed and the Adobe suite of software. Seriously: try it and get back to me.”
