Outside of his Maiden and Maiden-esque work (that piece he did with Steve-O, the Iron Maidens art) I don't much care for his art at all.

His digitally illustrated stuff is pretty bad, but I don't really like that 3D art style. Like the Gamma Ray / Stratovarious, sci-fi stuff.

Yeah, his non-Maiden stuff is so incredibly different. Like this illustration for Knott's Berry Farm ?

Everyone's an art critic. :D

I believe that falls under the "Maiden-esque" category. :D

I'm talking about this bullshit:

Dude, I don't mind it because it still has that Somewhere In Time vibe, and that's my favorite Riggs right there!

Meh, I might be willing to give it a pass if the dolphins had Eddie heads.

Dolphins do freak me out. What is that artwork from?

That artwork's a bit too hippy dippy for my taste

It's a Stratoviarios cover.

I'm a huge fan of Rigg's artwork for Maiden. When I was a kid I would stare at those record covers for hours and I fucking love them. He has an art book that goes on sale Monday. I'll probably end up buying it.

Same here...I used to have a bunch of the Maiden singles posters that he did...Wish I still had them...

That book looks decent

You see, a cover that's too Maiden-esque would not work for them.

That SIT illustration (without the logos) is so amazing - you could get lost in it!
