Paul Normansell - GQ Man of the Month
In an honour ususally bestowed upon Movie and Pop stars, GQ Magazine has made Paul Normansell Man of the Month saying: "Now regarded as one of the most innovative young artists in the world" and "Brandon Flowers commissioned the artist to design the sleeve of his band's third album; MTV voted it the finest cover of the decade and Rolling Stone called it the best art of 2008." The legendary photographer David Bailey took the photograph of Paul, just before shooting Prince Harry!
The Killers, commissioned Paul Normansell to do the artwork for their album "Day and Age" and single "Human" after seeing an article in GQ magazine. The Killers loved the paintings Paul did for them so much that they based their video for "Human" around his work which has been seen by tens of millions of people!
Rolling Stone called it The Best Album Art of 2008.
