Robert Beatty

NY Times “Why Time Flies”

The first picture i wanted to find had to be something that i sort of recognized. Robert Beatty is known for his vintage/retro design that have many newspaper companies and musical artists alike wanting his art. I like this piece mainly because it reminds me of 2001: A Space Odyssey. If you haven’t seen it i highly recommend you do. The glass shard in the middle of a desert sky was something that clicked for me. the light blend of the background is a nice touch too.

Dent May’s “Across The Multiverse”

This was kind of a shock to me. I remember listening to this album when it came out and always recognizing how cool and vibrant the album cover was, but i had no idea Robert Beatty created the album cover. From the tropical setting on the left to the space setting on the right, it really does go across the multiverse. The outline of Dent May which goes across the color spectrum, and the sparkle in his shades have a great result.

Neon Indian’s “Vega Intl. Night School”

This is my favorite album of all time. I had no idea that Robert Beatty created the album cover and all of the art for Alan Palamo’s project. Matter of fact, the first post i made on here was Robert Beatty’s art from this album without knowing it. The album cover truly is a representation of the sounds produced in the album. Neon lights shine bright while a MOOG synthesizer in the background casts a purple light. The logos on the left side with the Japanese lettering offer a cool visual as well. 10/10.
