albumTimes are tough for artists used to selling multi-million dollar works, but it seems they’re tougher than we thought. Not only is artist Damien Hirst back to designing album covers for The Hours, he’s also using a sweepstakes to offload the $186,000 original painting, plus some prints as well. Of course, the former skull-bedazzler does own the label putting out the band’s new album, so it’s not as though he’s giving away the work for nothing, he’s just trading it for publicity the same way creative trailblazers like Burger King and Kia would.
