Shooter Jennings contacted me and told me how much he loved my 80’s work. He asked if I would do the cover to his new collaborative effort, Countach: For Giorgio. The album was to feature a variety of artists from Marilyn Manson to Brandi Carlile. They were each doing a cover from the 80’s work of Giorgio Moroder, the famous film song and soundtrack creator. How cool is that!?
We are both big fans of He-Man and I suggested a large purple panther be the main icon. It fits the song Cat People and also fits Skeletor’s big cat companion, Panthor. Win-win. I then had the idea to surround him with other icons from the movies Moroder worked on. It came together in a fun homage piece.
