This is Loronix tribute to Musicians Day. I was with a friend today that is a graphic designer. I told him about the musician day in Brazil and he had the idea to make a photo mosaic of an artist based on Loronix LP covers. He told me how to do it and it was really simple, I took a Baden Powell picture and a collection of more than 5,000 LP images – cover, back covers, labels – that were stored on my hard disk.

He has a software that makes the correct decisions picking up individuals tiles among the 5,000 images collection and assembles it on a grid building this output that you can see above at low-res and you will have a lot of fun downloading the 2048 x 2048 original picture here (no rapidshare, direct link to image) to inspect what covers were used to build the picture.

If you google “mosaic creator” you will find several applications. Unfortunately, I can’t remember which one I used to make this one.
