One of the first names in progressive rock artwork and design, R.I.P

I'm sure we all have a favourite (or MANY favourites) Storm piece.

He did excellent covers with hipgnosis. He is now on the dark side of the moon. R.I.P.
Very sad.

Very sad to just read this. A man who hung with FLOYD members long before they became famous. Loved his art work too.

Oh lord, RIP Storm. Brilliant artist with a vast array of work, not just the iconic DSOTM. 

He did the artwork for the first two Mars Volta CDs, some more of my all time favorite artworks.

Can't overemphasize the impact of Hipgnosis in not just the progressive rock field, but in the art world overall.
