Ulasan - Run For Cover, The Art of Derek Riggs ( part ii )

19/10/2014 UPDATE-

The text remains on this post..

Continuation of my review and photoshoot of one of the best books ever and its personalised too.
The ( part i ) is here
Anyway, all hardcovers are now Sold Out as of now at

The sketches for one of the most complicated album artworks of all time. I really hope to go thru the SIT vinyl artwork bit by bit and try to identify myself all the small wonderful things and messages hidden everywhere. I hope to do it very soon.

Cyborg Eddie sketches for the SIT era

Stranger In A Strange Land single artwork. This is another one which I love so much. It is like that Star Wars A New Hope bar scene where Han Solo meet up with Luke and Eddie is like that cool Clint Eastwood of the Western Spagetti Movies, one of them is also another of my favourite movie, The Good Bad And Ugly.
I was seriously considering asking Mr Derek Riggs to draw me a SIASL Eddie, but I go for the Trooper Eddie instead as it is always the sentimental favourite.

My desktop wallpaper hehehe

the clansman artwork from a very difficult era for Maiden fans, musically.
I especially like that Eddie destroying the whatever building it is call, because on this book, the artwork is blown up, and you can see little details clearly, bodies flying down, and of course the concorde.

What if Derek's Fear Of The Dark was choosen instead for the album cover?
What if its the Eddie lurking at the bed edge, instead of coming out of a tree?

trust me, this book is awesome. Its for all Maiden fans everywhere.

Gamma Ray artworks are discussed in detail too. Its nice reading about Kai Hansen and his ideas and plans for Gamma Ray.
Another good one is when Derek talks about Bruce Dickinson Accident Of Birth period where Bruce wants a kind of Eddie for both the AOB album and singles.

Besides Somewhere In Time, the other artwork I want to go thru each tiny details and intepret them myself as a Maiden fan, would be the Powerslave album artworks. One of the most beautiful ever too.

Bring Your Daughter To The Slaughter the one for the CD single is sweet too. I really like the Sesame Street Oscar the Grouch, coming out from his dustbin.

Enlarge this one and read an opinion of another Maiden artist on Derek Riggs. I think this is the guy who did AMOLAD cover? I am not sure.

This is another of Derek's artwork. This book has tons of them. Its crazy and for the price, especially getting the personalised one. Derek drawing you an Eddie, getting additional gifts, like I had shown on my part 1 review. Its heaven.

So, even though all the hardcover versions of both 'signed and numbered' and the " personalised " versions are currently all sold out, there are still the softcover ones of both 'sign and numbered " and also the normal ones.
So try to grab this book if its possible. And I didnt know that the HBTN live artwork Eddie which is frying Bruce looks so similar to Nicko till I read this book, and we know how much Nicko was unhappy with Bruce at that period

Up The Irons and wishing Derek Riggs ( and Kim ) good health and he recover from his sickness soon.
