During my long-postponed visit to the UK this month, I came across a number of original artworks.
Stored in air-tight folders and packed into a steel chest, items from the early to late 90’s (including a number of animation frames and storyboards from the two animations I did for KMFDM) came to light as well as a treasure trove of ink originals, sketch books, silkscreens and graphic porn – all in perfect condition.
Discovery of lost 9/11 series.
I will be auctioning many of these rare items on eBay in a month or so, so please keep watching this space.
I‘m often asked how much preparatory work goes into each album cover I do and this series of rough conceptual work goes some way in illustrating how the final design comes about. 3 months before the final artwork was completed, I started outlining the various ideas I had for the sleeve and a slew of pictures emerged from the process which Sascha and I discussed before I began to build the final image. Now, I am able to present these images for sale. Anyone interested, please leave your contact details in the comments box below or contact me via our Gmail account firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll provide prices and size details. All the above are rendered in black indian ink and signed.
I recently submitted my final draft for the recently-released KMFDM album ‘Tohuvabohu’. However, when I saw the print version, the background was entirely different to my version. When I asked why it had been changed, I was informed by KMFDM that it had been ‘remixed’. I’m not a big fan of music and know even less of its workings but don’t artists usually have a say in how their music is remixed? It’s like discovering the babysitter has tattooed a rude name on your kid’s head.
Anyway, see which one you think rules and which one sucks.
