Oasis - Some Might Say - Sleeve Artwork Explained

Some Might Say is my favourite of all the Oasis sleeves I created, it’s also their first number one and the first oasis artwork to feature both of my parents! In the following blog article I’ll tell the story of how the whole thing came about.

Oasis - Some Might Say. A Microdot sleeve.

By Autumn 1994 I had already created artwork for every Oasis release to date, namely – ‘Supersonic’, ‘Shakermaker’, ‘Live Forever’, Cigarettes & Alcohol’, ‘Definitely Maybe’ and ‘Whatever’, so we were fully in the swing of things. The process always began the same way...
