What specific inspirational veins did you tap and why?
A lot of what The Beatles’ and Paul’s music did was very specific, not just in musical style but also as it related to the particular graphical, inspirational styles of the era, whether it was what they did with Peter Max, or A Hard Day’s Night, or the Monty Python-style graphics mixed with psychedelic styles. This is what I drew from.
Paul is an artist himself, outside of being a musical artist, and so we also drew on a number of his favourite visual artists and incorporated their artwork into the art style. There are a lot of things that I always tap into for any of the designs for Paul’s shows. For the One on One tour, we animated the album cover for Sgt. Pepper, because it was the 50th anniversary. It was fun turning a still image into an animated video clip.
