‘Fish On’ – Lindemann: Typography illustration

fish on lindemann

Finally got round to listening to Lindemann’s album ‘Skills in Pills‘ and couldn’t miss the opportunity of illustrating ‘Fish On’. Not heard so many fish-euphemisms in one place since ‘Laichzeit’ by Rammstein. Till Lindemann certainly does like his fish poetry and it is always so unbelievably amusing to illustrate.

And the result is my usual illegible typography swirling from a (rather phallic-looking) eel’s mouth, crawling from the zip of some bloke’s jeans (I can only dream they’re Till’s!). My mind is truly climbing the H.R.Giger counter since leaving university. I’ll never be anywhere near Giger’s genius but he is always an inspiration.

Note: for anyone who’s not a fisherman and unsure of what the item is in the top right corner, it’s a discourger, used for removing hooks from a fish’s throat. Along with the hook, one to catch and one to let go it seemed appropriate for the song!

    • Yes it’s a side project he’s done with Peter Taegtgren (yes I copied and pasted that name!). I think Richard has done a side project as well but I haven’t had chance to look at his yet. Will most certainly get round to it though!
