Frank Olinsky paints Rusty Cloud.

April 27th, 2008

Rusty Cloud
When I was a budding record producer my go-to guy for album covers was my great friend from childhood, Frank Olinsky, who went on to become one of the most respected and successful music designers of the last 30 years (starting, most famously, with his co-design of the MTV logo). He selflessly went to work on whatever I asked him for, including this unreleased album cover for the unreleased (really tasty) jazz album cut by R&B pianist/singer/songwriter Rusty Cloud (Bo Diddley, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes, The Blues Brothers). (Maybe I can find and post the tapes someday.)

Frank’s a great designer, but, in my eyes, an even more incredible illustrator and painter. This cover always reminded me of Eberhard Weber’s “The Colours of Chloë”, but with Frank’s trademark wry humor.

this is great. Frank’s work is very cool.
I was on his blog a couple days ago, and thought this would somehow be a perfect fit for Ultra Kawaii. It’s a series of photos frank took of Dogs waiting for their owners. Very clever.

Jeez Louise, Fred.
You were a part of graphic design history.

 

I’m a lucky guy to know all the innovators I know. Chauncey Gardner is me.
