Roger Dean (born 31 August 1944) is an English artist, designer, architect and publisher, best known for his work on album covers for musicians (particularly Progressive Rock acts). His unique, instantly recognisable style often features exotic, fantastic landscapes typically populated with dramatic, impossible natural rock formations, lush alien wildlife/fauna, and strange organic structures…

With the release of James Cameron’s technically groundbreaking blockbuster Avatar, Dean’s currently enjoying a surge of interest in his work, as it’s obvious Avatar‘s design team has borrowed many visual cues… to be fair though, it’s pretty much inconceivable to think of fantasy and sci-fi art without thinking of Roger Dean.
