Artwork for seventies hard rock band. Part 2. Old French science fiction comics like Möbius and Valerian as an inspiration. The idea was Karl May in Space (look at “Durch die Wüste”). The old book covers were pretty good, although I never understood the fascination with the books themselves. Sketches and second graphic below.

Melanchoholics Solar Café

Next part in updating my blog. This is a record cover I did for Melanchoholics. The making of this took very long because it was overshadowed by the death of their mastermind Benedikt Kristofer Bjarnason who died of cancer in 2010. I hardly knew Benedikt, but he was great. The cover is based on photographs he took in small Icelandic village and photographs of his ancestors that had a kind of weird and spooky atmosphere to them. If you look at the cover very closely you can see these photographs. I would love to show them by myself because they are very beautiful , but I don´t have the rights.covermela_eangepasst_2klein  covermela_g-(1) covermela_linernotes_2covermela_bandp ahnenzeichnung_2
