The front cover of Happy? was a nod to the German artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser, whose work I was truly impressed by. I don’t know nothing about him, I don’t want to. I just know that any time that man put something together I was completely interested. He did architecture, too, and it was always interesting, for instance using gardens on the floors of skyscrapers, and altering the shape of a building and making it interesting to the eye for the observer – as on our sleeve.
