A hippie genius painter/designer; died in 1983, a suicide. Much cool British pop-culture design of the 80's owes a debt to him, or was his. His rock cred came from early work for Hawkwind, but his work for Stiff Records - ads and covers in the 70's for Elvis Costello (Armed Forces, for example), The Rumour, Ian Dury (Bubbles did the Blockhead logo), and others defined the cool that got appropriated by damn near everybody not named Peter Saville.
