Jazz In Da House album cover

This spring/summer season I’m going to be pretty busy with a new series of retro album covers. These will include some jazz, latin, exotica, tiki, electronic and space-age goodies. Here’s my latest album cover “Jazz In Da House” / The Seattlement Quartet, bringing back the groovy and hype beats from …

The lyrics of this song relates the situation between two lovers who get far from each other because of their indecision and passivity. So I pictured this image of two young lovers in an English period scenery, waiting for a letter that was never sent and never received, letting the fog grow slowly around their feelings until there was nothing left between themselves but haze. For this scene, I was inspired by my personals memories of the time I lived in London in the 90’s: my autumnal walks the cold and foggy Thames and the silent streets haunted by the …

Illustration for Judy Dyble’s album “Talking With Strangers”, 2009. This song written by Tim Bowness and Alistair Murphy is about recovering an important part of ourselves that was always there.

I’ve always loved this song recorded by Emerson, Lake and Palmer. For this particular lyrics, I was trying to capture the concept of two lovers who don’t tell how much they love and need each other and they end up accepting the situation in resignation until the love fades away. I’m was deeply touched when Peter Sinfield sent me feedback about the work: “How delightful. Thank …

When I first got involved into this project, I really didn’t have the foggiest idea that members of King Crimson were involved in the album. To know about the involvement of band members Robert Fripp, Ian McDonald and Pat Mastelotto in the album gave me the chills! King Crimson’s music has played an important influence in my work since I was a teenager and I have seen the band play live on several occasions. I can especially remember a unique night at London’s Jazz Cafe in December 1997, watching a mind-blowing improvisation by King Crimson’s Project One. Adrian Belew was …

For this illustration I was inspired by old engraving illustrations of ships from the 17th century. The song lyrics are about meeting people on the Internet and I had this idea of portraying the net as a flying city. See full project
