Out of the Blue

Shusei Nagaoka is a Japanese illustrator best known for his sci-fi album cover artwork for people like Giorgio Moroder and The Electric Light Orchestra as well as lesser known acts like the Skyliners. Out of the Blue by ELO (above) was an album I stared at (and listened to, I admit it) a lot as a kid. I wanted to get in that spaceship! His slightly confusing and mildly amusing (I hope he doesn’t mind me saying) website is here.
