“Foxtrot” ala “Duke”

After I included this image as part of my recently added Art and Illustration page, I decided to post a copy to give it a proper home here, too. I originally did this back in 2011 for Joel Pfannenstiel and Greg Smallwood‘s short-lived “Visual Audio Club” blog, in response to their challenge to translate my favorite album’s cover.

When looking through my favorite albums, a lot of them didn’t have covers that inspired me … but then I hit upon doing Genesis’ “Foxtrot” album (Paul Whitehead, 1972), the best of their 5-member era, in the style of their “Duke” (Lionel Koechlin, 1980), the best of their 3-member era.

  1. Fun! My minicomic (The True Adventures of Jepcomix) always features an interpreted album cover too – we’ve had Moving Pictures, Born to Run, Synchronicity – the latest is Leftoverture. I’m happy to see someone else doing the same – if the club ever starts up again, please let me know! Right on.

    • Thanks– it was a lot of fun to do, one of those ideas that came to completion super quickly. Wish they all went that smoothly…
