Roger Dean 1680 x 1050 Wallpaper Pack


Over the last year or so i have had people asking me about the images on the right hand side of my blog, as well as the various banners i have used. They are all Roger Dean pieces. Over the years he has designed record covers for Osibisa, Yes, Budgie, Uriah Heep, Gentle Giant, Steve Howe, Greenslade, Asia, Earth & Fire, Billy Cox and Babe Ruth, just to name a few. In more recent years Dean began designing video game covers, the new tetris logo being one of the bigger ones.

It's kind of a shame all these wallpapers are rather hard to track down in good quality. A few years ago i had been trawling through the deep end of blogsearch and managed to snag this little gem. Here are 60 of Roger's finest works in full size and colour.

Consider this my late xmas present to you all ;)

You can still find some of the long out of print Roger Dean posters at Artists UK (www.artistsuk.co.uk)- Asia Pyramid, Astra, Blue Desert to mention a few of my old faves.

Ouchiewawa!!!

Thanx so much for these!

I've been looking for Dean Desktops for years... literally. I scanned a few of my fave albums but they look pretty crappy.

Is this something that was/is commercially available or someone's scans?

xo,

These really are nice!

Too bad there isn't a nice scan of one of my fave-rave Deans... the gatefold inside of Close To The Edge.

You guys should know that Roger Dean *sells* packs of these. I know, I actually paid the artist money for copies of his work.

Man, Can't thank u enuff, I used to have a lot of these on postcards, Don't know what happened to them so this is invaluable to me. U don' t Got Salvador Dali like this perchance???????
Peace, Love and Gratitude

These are especially nice in that they are a perfect high-res indication of Jim Cameron's thievery for his flick Avatar.

I had this old 70s poster (painting) of a smooth round boulder with all sorts of green growth on it... and a gurgling fountain slowly bubbling up from the surface. Kinda Deanish. I sure wish i knew who did it... and where to find a scan of it.
