    the father of Eddie: the legendary Derek Riggs

    This thread is devoted to Iron Maiden's first (and by far best in this writer's opinion) album cover artist: Derek Riggs

    Let's discuss:
    - what are your favorite (Riggs) album covers?
    - what are some of your favorite details or re-occuring elements in his work?


    To get things started:

    Here's a great link that displays and talks about all of the album cover and singles artwork that he created:

    Here's an interview with Riggs in 2010:

    Here's an interview with Riggs in 2013:

    I started a collection my favorite Riggs painted Iron Maiden album covers... basically, everything he ever did up until Seventh Son. I searched for the highest resolution versions that I could find and put them all in one place. There's even a folder for the singles covers.

    My favorite cover is not the very best album, but this cover is amazing with the lot of details in it

    I like the Eddie face with this nasty smile. This hand to take the VR player like a gamepad, only to manipulate his soul to make his puppet.
    Around him like a mantle, the land of hell with desperate souls and flames...
    You can see also the band in the bottom left corner.
    Really unbelievable works of Derek Riggs

    That reversed killers art is cool but not Riggs. It's fan art.
