Album Cover Illustration – Wish You Were Here

One of 18 new illustrated album covers I put together for an art show at Mahtay Café. Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd. One of Pink Floyd’s many iconic covers (courtesy of Storm Thorgerson and Hipgnosis), and probably my favourite. Cover aside, this is an absolutely beautiful album. From the Syd Barrett tribute “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” (which bookends the album), to the title track, and one of my favourite lyrics of all time – “We’re just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year.”

This is the last of the 18 album covers I put together for my show at Mahtay. Thanks for coming along for the ride.

Album Cover Illustration – Still Crazy After All These Years

One of 18 new illustrated album covers I put together for an art show at Mahtay Café. Still Crazy After All These Years by Paul Simon. The title track alone would make this a great album, but there’s so much more on this tracklist. 50 Ways To Leave Your Lover, My Little Town (with Art Garfunkel), Gone At Last (with Phoebe Snow) and so much more. Give it a spin!

Album Cover Illustration – Songs in the Key of Life

One of 18 new illustrated album covers I put together for an art show at Mahtay Café. Songs in the Key of Life by Stevie Wonder. This is a double album, with an additional 7-inch EP of even more songs. Not only is this one of my favourite albums, I would go so far as to say this is one of the greatest albums of all time. Wonder’s talents as a musician and songwriter are on full display throughout this incredible piece of work. If you haven’t listened to this album before, I highly recommend you do it now.
