"I wish to paint in such a manner as if I were photographing dreams" - Zdzislaw BeksinskiMy Happy Little Sketchbook, please check it out and help me get better!
Very weird and cool.
Evocative and both sinister and touching.
I love whoever is doing the graphic design for his soundtracks.
Oh man. No wonder that album art drew my eye.
a couple of my fave old struzan covers.
hes been doing them for a while..
ninjacat11: thats funny you mention mars volta, i used to kick it with those guys way back in highschool...so crazy how big they made it. im glad though, they have impeccable taste.
Scetchbook: View the exhibitionist's stuff.
I really don't like Dragonforce at all, but the work Andrew Jones did for this cover is the best thing I can attribute to them.
Also, Wolfmother is a terrible band, but at least they have good artistic taste. The fact that they used Frank Frazetta paintings for some of their covers is both badass and really disappointing.
Was going to suggest "A Matter of Life and Death" but I was beaten to it.
So here are my other two then,
Alice Cooper, Raise Your Fist and Yell. It makes me laugh every time I see it
and Pink Floyd's The Wall
Well Michael Whelan is actually my favorite artist of all time...but since someone already posted him....
Anything by Par Olofsson:
Anything by Raymond Swanland:
Anything by Dan Seagrave:
Anything by Vincent Locke:
These are a bit different, but I think the covers of the albums from world music label Putumayo are really charming. They're all done by artist Nicola Heindl. And of course, the music they contain is absolutely fantastic
Here are a few examples, all of which I own:
And one of my all time favourites is Absolution by Muse:
(scored to an IVAN MAXIMOV Classic animated short )
Whipped Cream and Other Delights by Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Model Dolores Erickson, I don't know the Photographer.
I like all the Aidan Hughes ones I see. Here is a typical example:

The dragon, by Welshman Terry Oakes
Fly by night, by Eraldo Carugat
I could post like a milion of those... for now I'll only throw in those three.
Dave Mckean - amazing covers for metal bands like Fear Factory, Machine Head also great comic artist/cover artist - for example Sandman covers.
Don't know who made the one from Poison the Well - but it's one of my favs.
And last - classic from Storm Thorgerson, this one made for Pink Floyd's classic Wish You Were Here album. He's famous for loads of amazing covers for artists like PF, Dream Theatre, Peter Gabriel.
Anything by John Dyer Baizley Incidentally he's also a guitarist and singer for Baroness....and rocks a mighty beard

"Its all Fish-Men in the end anyway" -Sara, my wife
"Whenever one finds oneself inclined to bitterness, it is a sign of emotional failure."
all the tool album art is killer.
but i've always loved this particular photo:
there's also a photo of a cow licking its own butthole that i love, but i cant find that online.
on the album einma i can only find the front cover that wasn't that intersting to me, but it has interchangeable covers that are awesome. had that lintuclar effect
