Does anyone have/can get/can make/can steal the Riggs version of the Futureal artwork in some kind of megabig format? I want to use it as a wallpaper or homescreen on my 35" ultrawide monitor that I use for Real Science Computing. That (along with the Clairvoyant) are by far my favorite Eddie artworks. Which artworks you ask? Futureal by Derek Riggs, and The Clairvoyant by Derek Riggs. I actually have a Clairvoyant hoodie sweatshirtjacket. I use it to keep my warm on cold nights in the abyss. It has a "middle pocket" that I can stick my hands in and then pretend I'm being deviant in public. But I'd never cut a hole in this sweatshirthoody just to make contact with my sausage. That's for the nighttime!

You probably didn't notice my previous post with all the rare Eddies? Anyway I have both Futureal and The Clairvoyant in excellent resolutions. Futureal is 2267 x 3102 and Clairvoyant is 5817 x 5759. Are these good enough for you? The only problem is I don't know how to send pms on this site.

I saw a couple of yours, but didn't go too far back. I'll go back and try to find them. That gigantic number you quoted biggable to me, thank you!

I meant to say that both Futureal and Clairvoyant have no type. Also I had to size down all those rare Eddie pics on the previous page, but don't worry I didn't overwrite the originals. I saved the much lower res versions temporarily to my desktop.

TAATG single has 3 covers, but Maiden have chosen the worst of the three to be the actual cover for the single. The case was the same with the Futureal single cover..... and I want to say that this song is far from the worst Maiden song ever, as so many fans thinks. The 4 minutes version on the official video is great and obviously they should had used it instead of the almost 10 minutes version that made the album, but I still like the song despite the awful repetition of the chorus and I will not include this song in my least favorite Maiden songs.

1- this is the original cover for the single. Just a EH Eddie head - lazy !!!
2- this artwork (I think it was created by Riggs) was used as a backdrop for the song live during the VXI tour back in 1998. Awesome cover !
3- and the third one is the best (currently my new profile picture). The second one fits the theme of the song better, but this artwork is genial - I wonder who is the artist? And I like playing games with cards, so... :p The second and the third artworks, Eddie is with his classic face, I always will admire that.
The third is from Riggs too. See the symbol on cards.

''Speed Of Light'' is the only single that do not have a proper cover art ! I'm still mad about that. Maiden have a big tradition with covers for singles, but they seems to be lazy nowadays (see Live Chapter reused tour poster). There is a cover for SOL in Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Speed_of_Light_(Iron_Maiden_song)), but not on the Maiden official site and it is just the same as TBOS album cover - just darker and the name of the song was added - bland and lazy ! EOTC also was released as a second single and it has a killer artwork. I hope for the new album's single to have a prover cover art.

Even some images from the video would have made a good cover art for SOL like:

This wasn't a real single as such, hence the shit cover. It only had one track and was only available from Best Buy stores in the US.

I'm very glad someone else noticed this. I agree, and because the single cover is a lazy black & white rehash of the album cover, I made up my own cover art. It's basically the Eddie from the 'Spped of Light' music video.

Part 2 of some more updates. I know it's a bit early, but I was searching for that Christmas Eddie with the little girl for ages in decent to excellent resolution and at last I found one in really excellent resolution.

Some of Derek's more recent Eddie's from his 2019 sketchbook which I bought on eBay very recently.
