Forest for British Progressive Rock
I grew up listening to Asia, ELP and Yes. Roger Dean-illustrator who did most of their album cover(except ELP) was one of the reasons that I got into Illustration major. I think it was my early teen years, took my piggy bank money to local record shop and I come home and look at his cover art and it drew me into wonderful fantasy world he imagined. Music was almost secondary. Then I later found out he even designed the props and stage sets for Yes. Back then gouche was the way to go- this particular image just came together in my head and guess what... I have been listening some of Steve Howe's guitar riffs..
Forgot to confess.. there's Casa Mila underneath this sloppy painting.:)
