Album artwork has given pop-culture some of it's most iconic imagery that has been appropriated and manipulated by artists again and again. Artist Harvezt has taken a new approach to album art inspired artworks by creating the the opposite perspective. Harvezt's series titled The Dark Side of the Covers reverses the iconic scenes so that they are visualized from behind.

Director Darren Dubicki of Aardman Animations created this incredibly elegant mixed-media piece to accompany and celebrate Pink Floyd's legendary album The Dark Side of the Moon. The three-minute piece serves as a trailer/supplement to an original radio drama based on the album, written by playwright Sir Tom Stoppard, which premiered on BBC Radio 2 on August 26th. Dubicki also created an extended film loop that will complement the audio experience online.

We are sad to hear that Storm Thorgerson, the world famous and extremely influential album cover artist for the likes of Pink Floyd, Muse, Led Zeppelin, the Mars Volta, Black Sabbath, and just a ton more, has passed away after a long battle with cancer. Obviously, Storm's work with Pink Floyd is era-defining, creating a visual identity to one of the most visual musicians of the 1960s and 1970s. After working on an issue celebrating the power of album cover artwork (you will read that one soon), we feel honoring Storm today is important for our entire industry.
