He was doing all the Polish metal band covers released by Metal Mind in the 80's. He was also ilustrator to some fantasy books and suddenly dissaperared. Maybe he has lost interest or smth. His cover arts were pretty much the same imo.

Some are pretty awesome. KAT second album, Dragon debut, Turbo Ostatni Tabor, for example.
Now that I know it I recognise most of those...they are really similar

KAT's Ballady and Bastard covers are made by Jerzy Kurczak too.

Dont like the recent Repka stuff. Always some idiot introducing or in front of exploding crap / a mess to the viewer. I understand it's some sort of a trademark but it's not actually a cool trademark.

Yeah all under Metal Mind got the Jerzy treatment. Cool
That Destroyers is the english version of the one I posted. It's a mirrored image though



I guess this was made to compare the similarities between the englisch & polish version better.

I really like this Polish guys stuff.

As for Repka, the only really decent stuff he has done lately is my friends band Deal With It's album cover, and the Guillotine cover (just because it has Robert Mugabe on it!).

yeah I knew it was an alternate art for the one you posted above but I wasn't sure if it was english or polish version.

does anyone know what Jerzy Kurczak has been up to and if he is still making art or doing covers?
