    The Hawkwind drumheads are Reasons to Be Cheerful Indeed:

    That first image is a mashup between the demon in NIGHT OF and…Big Barda from Jack Kirby’s Fourth World comic series–I’d know that glossy bouffant anywhere!

    A lot of Barney’s work for Hawkwind was a borrowing from somewhere. In 1972 he was swiping things from comics, not only Jack Kirby but also Druillet whose work wasn’t very familiar in the UK at that time. I like the mash-ups, some of them are as far as he went with direct illustration before working his way back to design.
