Happy birthday to Gerald Scarfe Print E-mail

Gerald Scarfe and Roger Waters, 2010. Photo: Jane ScarfeOur very best wishes go to Gerald Scarfe today as he celebrates his birthday. Gerald, of course, is a graphic artist with a long history with the Floyd, from the 1974 tour programme caricature, through to his most famous work on The Wall, and beyond that, working with Roger Waters on his Pros and Cons project. Many happy returns to Gerald on this special day.

As a reminder, almost three years ago, published in paperback, was Gerald's superb "The Making of Pink Floyd: The Wall", which is the authorized, definitive book about the project and includes new commentaries from the surviving members of Pink Floyd: Roger Waters, David Gilmour and Nick Mason, together with the director of the film, Sir Alan Parker. Roger Waters has written the foreword. The album imagery, stage performances and film were created in close collaboration with Gerald Scarfe, and his massive archive includes original storyboards, animation cells, concept drawings, models and other three-dimensional material together with photographs of the creation and staging of the live performances and the filming of The Wall. It even covers the 2010-2013 tour. Our review and full ordering details can be found here.

The accompanying photo of Gerald Scarfe and Roger Waters in Scarfe's studio, shows them going through material for the book [click the thumbnail to view it in more detail]. It's a lovely, personal look at work on the book, and was taken by Jane Scarfe (Asher), and online exclusively here at Brain Damage!

The photo accompanying this article was taken by, and is copyright of, Jane Scarfe, and is a Brain Damage online exclusive. No unauthorised use elsewhere, please.

Finally, in case you've not seen these yet, here's a trio of exclusive video interviews done for Brain Damage by Gerald, talking about The Wall...
