UFO's 22nd studio album and my sixth UFO album design. A couple of album titles were suggested and various album visuals were created. In total, twenty album visuals were created and discussed over a period of four months - the final design was chosen and work then begins on creating all the additional artwork for the various formats. I enjoy this process as much as the album cover design itself, as each art panel is a unique piece of artwork, which has to hang together in a co-hesive way.
I was watching 'Thunderball', the James Bond film with Sean Connery one Sunday - those of you who know their bond films will recall the lengthy underwater battle sequence.
