The masters series: Joe Petagno (Pt. 2)

Another Perfect Day (pictured left) is another fine example for the intensity and skill of Joe Petagnos oeuvre yet it also sets itself apart from the typical heavy metal imagery by somewhat abstracting the familiar Snaggletooth theme.

Interesting is also that both the Motörhead headline and the album title are part of the artwork itself rather than being added later.

This image had a lasting influence on my own way of seeing things and taught me to always try and observe things from different angles.

Some people may call this commercial illustration, I call it a masterpiece.

I love the album, too, but I seem to be contrary to popular opinion on this one.
