I love the detail of the fossil in the rock.

I've heard somewhere that Dean's little logo of that flying craft, which you see inside many albums, was called a 'gorilla' ??

You can  see the pwaw prints in fact

You can indeed. He made them into clouds, I always thought that was great.

I didn't know that, are the paws / clouds the dark band running horizontally at the bottom of the 'island' in this painting?

I was looking for those paw clouds as well, and that was the only one of the Yessongs images, that I didn't expect it to beLOL

I know they are very feint aren't they. Can you imagine that crytsal clear blue sky before his cat walked over it? he must have been a little  annoyed.

Very feint indeed. I'm telling myself that I can spot them now, but maybe I'm just seeing things...

Dean strikes me as an extremely disciplinary artist, I mean if you're going to paint with that surreal and clean feel to it, you really have to be. 
I think he must've flipped out seeing his work molested by paw prints.

I am sure they are clearer in his book "Views". I suspect that they have been digitally doctored since.

I thnk in his book Views from 1975 there is a photo of it before he touched it up. I'll check it. I just moved and all my sh*t is everywhere. I'm pretty sure it's this one but I'll check

You missed this one :

When I was a kid I saved the skull of a robin the cat dragged in and actually made a model like this by cutting off the nose section of a Lockheed Starfighter model and attaching the skull. It looked kind of weird because it was not to scale. I used a Starfighter because I couldn't find a model of the SR 71 .

This is a cool DVD to have. Prices have come down on this item: Amazon now has copies starting at $33.


Quote Presented by Rick Wakeman, this DVD features some of Roger's most famous work, including the paintings which defined the art of record sleeve design and inspired a generation. For this project top musicians were interviewed, including Steve Howe, Ken Hensley, Mick Box and John Wetton, along with Dean himself. Also includes performance footage by Uriah Heep, Asia and Rick Wakeman.
