    We here at the LPA want to exclusively bring to you the first images of A Thousand Suns in their retail state, as well as other unused works for promotion. Artist Josh Vanover (SPACEKNUCKLE) has been working alongside LP to create the exciting images we have seen in the build up to the release of ATS, and you can check out some of his collection at his Flickr Account.

    [​IMG]

    Follow Josh at his twitter, where he promises that ATS may be a "simple cover" but is "madness inside", and that Rick Rubin himself chose the ATS cover. Can't wait to see more of the art Josh!

    Check out his ATS art here.

    Check out his ATS album cover mock-ups here.

    Check out a selection of GIF Images below:

    - Mike Face Melt
    - Mike Face Melt 2
    - Joe Melt
    - Chester Dust

    Like what you see from Josh? Why not hit up the http://www.ryz.com/artists/josh_vanover store, check out those awesome shoes & tee, and add them to your cart!

    Please be sure to check out the rest of his exceptional work at spaceknuckle.com.

    Boy am I glad that image in the news post isn't the official cover. Now THAT looks like immature photoshop work to me personally.

    EDIT: But the rest of the artwork/photoshop stuff is great. I love the style.

    Thanks LPA! It's always interesting to hear/see the "What ifs". The guy said on flickr that he personally would have chose this image! No offense dude but thank god that didn't happen. I'm really loving the special edition cover (which I'm getting). As grudge was saying, the rest of your work is great!

    Cool stuff.

    If I remember correctly wasn't the following the "placeholder" album cover for The Catalyst? (I forget which message board I saw it on.)

    Looking at the fan edition, I think we will see some sort of variation of that alternate
    cover in the artwork (top right):

    I really dig those shoes in the second page of his flickr link. Too bad my feet are about a thousand times too fat for slip ons.

    You should try to get your hands on LP's 5th studio album...which they haven't even recorded yet. Now THAT would be one heck of an exclusive.

    Working on that, however right now I'm tweeting this from my cellphone, hoping someone will see it. I'm under arrest. LP has me tied up to a chair, for trying to sneak into the studio. Remember that scary guard every article writes about? He has a gun to my head.

    I'm at 119 wa-..........

    Derek's joke was ridiculously lame. This, on the other hand, makes up for the lameness and turns this whole thread into diamonds.

    To be honest, that cover looks even worse than the other two.

    I think all of the work is awesome! I can't wait to see what is inside the cover! Also, did anyone mention how badass the album looks in the jewel case with the text on the side? Fucking awesome. I love it all.

    But aren't jewel cases a step backwards for Linkin Park?

    Maybe so, I imagine a digipack version for the special edition, after all, these are only mockups, but a jewel case is inevitable with the standard album, and I think it looks great with the text on the side if that was to hit shelves that way.

    Agreed. If the album ends up being in a jewel case, that's the best way of going about it for sure.

    Yeah with the text on the side the cover is a lot more appetizing :).

    *Edit* I also don't agree with a few comments in here. This guy's work is OUTSTANDING.
