Surreal pop artist and advertising illustrator, Guy Peellaert, is probably best known for his album covers in the 70s, like the bizarre cover of David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs, but he was a fairly prolific painter as well. Still, most people are only aware of the album covers and his illustrated comics. The best known of his comics probably being the nearly naked, motorcycle-riding, female version of Mad-Max living in a lunatic future, Pravda la Survireuse. She’s so well-loved that Peellaert made this animated short about her in 2001:

Unfortunately, Peellaert died about a week ago, on November 21st 2008. Here’s a collection of his comic art and paintings for your viewing pleasure (some NSFW):
