This is awesome. I remember a little while ago when they were going to auction the “Master of Puppets” oil painting for 30-40 grand. Recently, I couldn’t afford the paltry-by-comparison 4500 bucks for John Baizley’s “Static Tensions” artwork he recently had on sale. Man, I wish I was fuckin’ rich.
oh yea, the master of puppets cover was actually for auction at Christies. I actually went it saw it in person at the preview. You are right it sold for around 30K. I love original album art. I wish I was rich too!
Ok. So I went to Les’ site, marvelled, second link I clicked was for a Brian Lumley novel, which made me think of the original art for Necroscope, which led me to Bob Eggleton, who has a similarly grotesque style.
My karma debt is paid….for now.
seriously: the covers for the necroscope series are DYING to be looked at. So 80s.
