    My fellow artists and creative types that all worked together in the creating of the images that I am displaying and that you the art and music fans are so favorably commenting about now in this survey.

    There are many great artists to mention and I might forget one or two because it was quite some time ago… but here goes. First there was my partner Tony Grabois, who wasn’t really a graphic artist per say, but a real artist with sales. Then there was Dean Marion, Joe Garnet, Drew Struzan, Bill Garland, Joe Petagno, Carl Ramsey, Bob Engelsiepen, Ingrid Haenke, David Coleman and Rick Lynch.

    With all my heart, I want to thank you one and all for your hard work, dedication and awesome talents at Pacific Eye & Ear that has made this awareness and acclaim possible today. Also, I want to thank Mike Goldstein and “The Album Cover Hall Of Fame” for this most prestegious honor I am truly thankful and greatly humbled. – Ernie
