Tubular Bells

Final Cover
Final Art
Ian Naylor completes a wallet cover illustration for Prog Rock Magazine.
Commissioned by Art Editor Russell Fairbrother, the illustration was for a feature on the meeting of Mike Oldfield and Richard Branson and the subsequent success of the 'Tubular Bells' LP back in the 70's. With the album cover being so iconic, the brief was to produce a slightly modern take on the original whilst retaining it's look. Ian says "The magazine has really good production values, lovely print and very well put together with a card wallet enclosing the magazine......this is my fourth wallet cover for them and they are good fun to work for. The Tubular Bells cover was fun to do but I nearly drowned at Morecambe taking photos of the sea!"
