Stop Staring at this Queen II tribute

Media Moment: Stop Staring textbook
Queen-related: Parody of Queen II cover

Mick Rock’s iconic photography for early Queen has been used to promote everything from Harper’s Island (see my blog entry here), Lego, and even a Harry Potter homage.

The latest sighting of a Queen II cover parody was sent to me by an old art school chum of mine, filmmaker Robert Riendeau, who recently became aware of my blog here and all things Queen-related found in it. 

I’ve since deputized him so you can expect more Queen sightings from him here on Queenville in the year to come.

Happy New Year, everyone.
