Re: ROTD cover art


The drawing is ok. It's the presentation, the cover lay out with the writing, colours and all, that is so unbelevably bad.

Re: ROTD cover art


I like the cover. But it is so not important.

Sign of our totally image-obsessed times....

I think it's a great cover. I have allways liked Rog's art and ideas! He is a likeable person, and a great artist emoticon

It's better than a couple of fools sitting atop a mound of bananas.

Maybe it means the next album will their swan-song? emoticon

Actually the drawing reminds me of another dane, one Storm P, quite famous for his simple drawings that turns the normal and expected upside down.

True, Storm, if not a genious then very close, did many cool drawings and writings. I'm sad I don't have his collection of gruks nor a collection of his drawings.

It works for me.

Anyway, I'm glad they don't go with one of those silly "Iron priest" covers.

Re: ROTD cover art


I like the cover- it's ourselves and the reflection of ourselves- distorted.

Turn it upside down...the starting point maybe different, but the result is the same.

The cover is what he album is all about.

Better tahn Bananas and Abandon. (imagine if they had a banana in speedos... emoticon

Re: ROTD cover art


I like it. Simple drawing but thought provoking. Am I ok and the world is warped or is it the other way around.

Re: ROTD cover art


It reminds me alot of the cartoons in the magazine called The New Yorker. Considering Glover lives nearby, I wonder is this where he got the inspiration of an album cover from.
