On the 18th of January 2018, I hand-painted a AT-LP120-USB turntable for Audio Technica. And I was joined by the talented Ryan Sauer, who made a time-lapse of the process. The song used is an instrumental mix of HOLE IN THE HEAD (by my band The Persian Drugs).
We started by spray-painting the whole thing black, then lightly pencil-sketching the design onto it. From there I filled in the orange, the yellow and then the white. All the while drinking sneaky-tinnys. Which in the video you can see I've spray painted each one black, haha. By the end of the video I've accrued a small pile of crushed black tinnys.
The design was based off the artwork for the 2018 Record Store Day slipmats. And I've attached the concept for the turntable below. I'll post some photos of the slipmats and Record Store Day murals soon.
