This past week Semi-Permanent and Carriageworks opened a Stanley Donwood retrospective exhibition, The Panic Office. Stanley Donwood has worked with Radiohead since 1994, designing the group’s albums and all associated artwork. The exhibition displays thousands of pieces of artwork from the Radiohead albums OK Computer, Kid A, Amnesiac, Hail to the Thief, In Rainbows and The King of Limbs, some unseen and all bearing Donwood’s evocative and haunting imagery that helped to create one of the world’s most distinct brands.

Smaller giclée editions of the book covers, including all the cover text, are also available to purchase. The show is on through April 25, 2015.

We don't think Thom Yorke likes doing pre-press to announce his albums. Sure, he likes the BitTorrent route he went with his new LP, "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes," and he likes the idea of getting rid of middle men and giving artists the chance to make their own money from their art and craft, but I'm convinced he wants to avoid talking to music journalists every few years to talk shop. So we get an unexpected album, and we get a glitchy video of Thom with boxing gloves for the opening track "A Brain In A Bottle," and all is good.

Stanley Donwood has long been famous for his album cover and companion artwork for world famous band Radiohead, but he has been able to take his highly notable artwork for the band into a stellar fine art and design career. We hadn't seen this yet, probably because it wasn't available in the US (someone tell us if that was true), but back in 2009 or so, Donwood did artwork for the cover of a special edition of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island." Fantastic pairing. Design by David Pearson for White's Books.

Yesterday, we showed you a preview of Stanley Donwood's new show, Far Away is Close at Hand in Images of Elsewhere, opening that London's The Outsiders gallery on September 20, 2013. When we were looking at the new work, we started seeing a theme... a theme that has entered Donwood's work with Radiohead and the King Of Limbs LP: trees! Lots of lonely, ghostly, reaching, bare trees. So we asked Mr Donwood... what's up with the trees?

Hollywood Dooom is a captivating collaborative artwork by Stanley Donwood and INSA that XL Recordscommissioned to celebrate the launch of Atoms For Peace's debut album, AMOK. Longtime Radiohead and Thom Yorke collaborator, Donwood, created the artwork for the Atoms For Peace album, a scene of armageddon in modern Los Angeles. This was interpreted by INSA as a piece of his patented GIF-ITI. INSA painted the Atoms For Peace artwork on to the XL office in Los Angeles a number of times, each a different frame of animation, to create a real life GIF.
