Larry Rostant’s portraits of Jimmy Edgar for DJ magazine

They broke the mould when they made this issue’s cover star Jimmy Edgar.

Larry Rostant's portrait of Jimmy Edgar is psychedelic, freaky, funky — and that’s not just his music. With a life well lived that’s reflected in the extraordinary scope of his albums and DJ sets, he’s not afraid to be different — and celebrates that difference.

A celebration of creativity, freedom and diversity is something that dance music should be about, but is something all too often lost in the chase for filthy lucre. Jimmy’s a star like they used to make, someone with something to say, and it seems that now more of us are listening than ever.

A Music Montage

This surreal montage illustration is by Andre Bergamin for a Victor Birgiss EP.

Andre was given the tracks to listen to and interpret in his own impressive way for this forthcoming record on the Love Potion label. And with a couple of keywords to keep in his mind; animals and Space, ampoule Andre went on to create this juxtaposed image for the cover artwork.

Songs of Europe

This amazing book of songs is illustrated by Christopher Corr for Carus in Stuttgart.

Christopher has made some vibrant paintings of the people and places from these European countries including the UK, Poland and Spain. And aided by his own global travels, he was the perfect artist to be part of this book. He says "I did lots of black and white drawings and full colour page illustrations and vignettes to beautify the book. Europe is a wonderful place. It's a joy to be European!"

Muddy Waters

Michael Tonn works on a T-Shirt design for Muddy Waters Cafe.

The commission was to celebrate their twentieth year of 'serving great coffee, tea and music.' Michael's illustration evokes a mellow environment, he says "I connected with the whimsical and naturalistic feel of the place and based my illustration on those themes."

Bill Wyman Logo

Ruth Rowland works on the new Bill Wyman logo for his official web site.
Ruth says "The development stage included a range of hand rendered styles, from handwriting akin to his own signature to this wilder version of his name using a dry brush to create a distressed, edgy mark. Combined with the designer's bold background and retro photo, the lettering makes a powerful impact on the music legend's homepage."

Reptile Brain Music

BoomArtwork produces an album cover for Swedish rock band Imperial State Electric.
Nicke Andersson; former front man of The Hellacopters approached BoomArtwork to create the art for the vinyl album of his new band. He asked for something bold and vintage to illustrate the record title 'Reptile Brain Music', so BoomArtwork set to work using his fabulous design and illustrative skills and made this punchy retro visual, he says "... First I drew the hand of Zeus with my brush and ink, and then the crocodiles eating each other's tail. In Photoshop I placed everything together and then started with the typography. Instead of using an existing typeface I thought it would make the album more special to create custom lettering. After finishing I added some filters to make it look like it was released in the 70's. It was so much fun to illustrate an LP album cover, as it is such a cool, tactile canvas to work on."
