Did you know that the song Castellorizon from David Gilmour’s On An Island album is named after a Greek island near Rhodos, where David has his own house? Did you know that the lines read by the teacher to the laughing class in The Wall movie are actually snippets of Money lyrics? Did you know that Roger Waters used to play golf?

Scarfe, Gerald Anthony

cartoonist

Gerald Scarfe started his career as a cartoonist and caricaturist, author of numerous political cartoons for the British magazines Punch, Private Eye and Time Magazine.

He is also known for being the author of the animated sequences in Yes, Prime Minister.

In 1979 he was asked by Waters to design the album cover of The Wall. Scarfe’s design was simple, but unforgettable. He was the first to break the monopoly of Hipgnosis on Pink Floyd album covers. Waters has been criticised for the decision, but truth be told, the cover is along with that of Dark Side Of The Moon the most widely known and most reproduced of the Pink Floyd covers.

The cover and booklet of the album were just the beginning. Scarfe is also the designer of the inflatable puppets, that were used in concert (the idea of giant inflatable puppets first came around during the making of the Animals cover album, when the inflatable flying pig was used for the first time). He is also the author of the outstanding animated scenes in Pink Floyd The Wall film, the lovemaking flowers or the trial.

He directed and animated the clips that were screened on the wall during live shows.

He created the graphics for Waters’ album Pros And Cons Of Hitch Hiking.
