    Just because I wanted to post it


    The last time I kept an open mind,
    my brain fell out and the dog grabbed it.
    Now it's full of dirt, toothmarks, and dog slobber.
    No more open minds or dogs for me.www.gms9810.com/

    Wonder if this chap is related to the artist who did the old Cream album covers.

    Trippy! Fun stuff.

    The artist that made the psycodelic art on the early Cream albums was Martin Sharp. He was a leading australian rock artist and the creator of the mag OZ. Hi died last year at the age of 71. RIP, your album cover on Disraeli Gears is one of the very best ever!

    Nice underground, no underwater, psycodelic art...

    . . .and don't forget another iconic one for Wheels of Fire.

    Interesting. I didn't know who he was since they didn't really publicize album cover artists very much, or maybe at the time before I really got into art in a serious way that I wasn't looking at the liner notes at the time this came out. But I certainly admired his work.

    Here is another guy who did the iconic Abraxis Santana cover.

    George, your guy is very interesting and an example of someone taking rendering skills into a fanciful area.

    Too bad that there's not that wonderful market for album cover art like they had back in the heyday of rock. Your linked-to artist would be a hit.

    Oh yes, Doug B. I remember Roger Dean very well. We were nuts for him in art school because he was very creative with rather off the wall techniques and his unique design sense. I seem to recall one of his tricks was where he floated enamel on water and pulled paper up through it and incorporated that into his landscapes by cutting shapes of it and splicing it in. . . I *think*. Anyway, whatever he did was fairly seamless and worked great. It was a long time ago and I'm saying this from memory, but I certainly recall that we stood in the record shop looking at his covers and trying to figure out how he got the effects that he did. This was all well before the internet and we didn't have answers right at our fingertips. So when we were wrong, it lead to us going down a different path and creating something new.

    So anyway George, this is an example where not every little bit is rendered with deliberateness, but it rather gives that impression of having been thought through and planned. . . or so it seemed to me. I think after doing it a time or two he had a pretty good idea what would happen and could 'experiment' fairly confidently.

    His covers always looked full, rich and fanciful. Album cover art was a shore I sat on to watch the sunsets regularly. Always something new and creative going on.

    EDIT: Somewhere in cyberspace Angelfire killed the link. If interested, just do a Google Images search for "Roger Dean Yes Album Covers"
