Dave Mckean

One of my very favourite designers is Dave Mckean, so I thought today I'd share some of the album cover art he's done.  The first is a Tori Amos cover, showcasing Dave McKean's tendency to mix photography with a collage of items. The result is usually a strange but gorgeous piece... It just works.

The second piece is a Dream Theater cover... A collage of many different photos which juxtapose to make up one face. It is distorted and emotional; dreamlike in its layerings. The first two covers are very warm in their colouring, but the third is a departure in this sense.

The third is colder, more monotone... but anything but boring. In this piece he's blended his image right in with the wood behind, and it is very effective.
