We’ve already seen more experienced artists give popular covers their own twist – may it be vintage to modern and vice versa, replacing the people on the photos with superheroes, or Lego-fied versions among many others – and while these are definitely interesting, we think these hand-drawn reinterpretations by kids are worthy of our attention, too! “Album Covers by Kids” is a Tumblr-hosted blog which collates “classic album covers reinterpreted by the artistic talents of kids” using the usual art materials such as paper and colored pens and crayons. They may not be faithful recreations, but you’d have to agree that these drawings are equal parts adorable and amusing! Most of these kids probably hadn’t even been born yet when most of these albums were released!
