Huffington Post - over 3 years
The Spring of 1970, I was working part-time after classes my senior year at Music & Art, the same high school my pal, Stan Eisen, had graduated from the year before. From about 2 to 5pm, four days a week, I was a file clerk for the Director of the Placement Department at Columbia Law School (finding jobs for graduates with brand new law degrees), a very Englishman named Howard. He was clearly a muckety muck. A lovely guy, but always carrying an air of harried distraction with him (lots of that Hugh Grant running-his-fingers-through-his-vexed-hair when Hugh was 2). I haven't seen Howard in decades, but, his younger brother, Roger, a thorough rock 'n' roller, and I remain fast friends. I shared a small office with a young woman. I was 17, she was 22. Let's call her Emily. She was a second-year law student defraying a smidge of her tuition with a semi-menial job. She was very sweet, but a stone cold string-of-pearls/fuzzy sweater square. One day, out of nowhere, she s ...

    Dean designed the now-classic Yes "bubble" logo, which first appeared on the album Close to the Edge, and continued to create covers for the band until as recently as 2014 (Heaven & Earth).
    More Details Hide Details Yes guitarist Steve Howe said, "There is a pretty tight bond between our sound and Roger's art." In addition to their album covers, Dean also contributed to his brother Martyn Dean's stage set designs for the band. Known primarily for the dreamy, other-worldly scenes he has created for Yes, Budgie, Uriah Heep, Gentle Giant and other bands, Dean has said, "I don't really think of myself as a fantasy artist but as a landscape painter." Characteristic landscapes show graceful stone arches (as shown in Arches Mist, below) or floating islands, while many paintings show organic appearing habitats (such as shown in the cover for Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe). Though he primarily works with watercolour paints, many of his paintings make use of multiple media, including gouache, ink, enamel, crayon and collage. In addition to his cover paintings, Dean is respected for his calligraphic work, designing logos and titles to go with his paintings.

    Age 68

  • TWENTIES
  • 1968
    Age 23
    His first album cover work was in 1968 for the Gun.

In the same year Dean produced the cover for the first album by the African/Caribbean band Osibisa, which featured a hybrid insect/elephant. This was much closer to Dean's work as we came to know it and it attracted widespread attention. Later that year, he began the partnership with the progressive rock bands Yes (and Asia) for which he is best known. His first design for Yes was for their album Fragile.
    In 1968, he graduated from the Royal College of Art in London where he was a student of Professor David Pye.

Beginning in the field of design, he preferred to distinguish between design (the reworking of existing models), and invention (making something new). One of his inventions was the "sea urchin chair." It was a foam chair, which, though appearing spherical, would conform to the sitter, who could obtain a seated position of varying angles. Later, he was asked to design a "landscape" of similar seating for a club belonging to Ronnie Scott. His "retreat pod" chair design was featured in the film A Clockwork Orange.
