When it came time to creating the Miss Anthropocene cover art, Grimes turned to the software “New Gods.” The final design ended up looking like something you’d find in an alternative universe’s Photoshop.

Just two months after the album’s release, Grimes unveiled what the original artwork was going to be. In an Instagram post, Grimes revealed that she had commissioned the cover at from the artist Rupid Leejm. However, she was told by various individuals that she shouldn’t use it. Despite her gut telling her to move forward with it, she ultimately decided not to.

“This was the original Miss Anthropocene album cover which I commissioned from one of my *favourite* artists @rupid79m I polled a bunch of ppl and everyone said not to use it (??) but I wish I trusted my gut. I fucking LOVE this painting. Maybe there’s a way to utilize it still (very open to ideas if u guys have ideas). I also love commissioning and/ or buying prints and art. It’s something I just got into this year. It’s a great way to support visual artists during the quarantine.

Normally I draw the covers myself I just wasn’t feeling it for miss A after like ten failed album covers. Ps I love what we did w Ryder and Gmunk. Not hating on that just wish I’d even kept this as the illustration in the program maybe instead of my drawing which.. is fine but not blowing my mind haha.”
