As Promised: the Jimi Hendrix art of Jean Giraud, aka Moebius.
Totally off the Sixth Ear Radar but couldn’t help myself here. Two of my favorite things together. Enjoy.
A photoset from the fantastic futurist designer Syd Mead. More info and art over at Hyperallergic.

Frank Zappa’s music is the best thing to use for animation and nobody is putting it to use (except for Duckman which barely took advantage of it.) The Yellow Shark album is one of my favorites to daydream to (The Grand Wazoo and Absolutely Free are two others I’d recommend.) I’d sell my soul to get Gail Zappa to allow me to use this stuff for my own work/series. It makes my brain cream itself to a visual story unlike anything I’ve ever seen.
If you want a quick jolt of inspiration and can’t sit through the whole concert then check out these four songs from this performance:
11:20 - 16:32 for “Dog Breath Variations” and “Uncle Meat”
1:11:24 - 1:14:57 for “Pound for Brown” and “Exercise #4”
