Roger Dean is Badass


Roger Dean is an artist, architect and designer (his “retreat pod” is featured in Clockwork Orange) whose work mostly deals with fantasy and sci-fi.  He is primarily known for the covers he made for progressive rock bands such as YES and ASIA, characterized by  fantastic landscapes, out-of-this-world creatures, and crazy typework.  Fittingly, Dean also did most of the covers for the video game development house Psygnosis (responsible for Barbarian, Shadow of the Beast and many other classics…) and their logo.  But, as an architect he has also been able to make his imagined habitats a reality.  Insane.  His creations are the ultimate nerd fantasy – the perfect mixture of Lord of the Rings, Avatar, and trippy 70s psychedelia.
