Salute! I promised and I did it.
I have been listening to Riverside
not too many months, approximately from the beginning of the year (2009), superficially at first, for a wonder… But since Anno Domini High Definition
album was released, I finally lent an attentive ear to this band's music and return to their old records. Today they are one of my favourite prog-rock performers. Simultaneously I know that guys experience very sharp upsurge of popularity and interest in their creation in Europe. Even ''local'' heroes must be known by sight, right? Here they are, clockwise and from left to right:
Piotr Grudziński (lead guitar player), Piotr Kozieradzki (drummer), Michał Łapaj (keyboardist, theremin player and backing vocalist) and, at last, Mariusz Duda (lead singer, bass and acoustic guitar player). Ah, yes! Szkarłatny ptak is not forgotten too.
I drew them thrice-cartoon, as I always do.
Mechanical pencil outline colored in Photoshop.Background pictures used when imitating official artwork were taken by me and my soul mate at Cheryomushki District, at the turn of the road near my residence and from my balconies.
P.S. There were 44 layouts in sum. I learned it after end of my work; it was pure coincidence, because 44:44 is the length of ADHD
album, and also 44 is a count of Riverside
concerts in its supporting tour before the end of this year.
P.P.S. Red Roy is watching you! Do you mind?
