  Eyestorm
Stanley Donwood is well known for his collaboration with Radiohead, having produced the artwork for the bands album and single record sleeves since 1994, when he designed the artwork for My Iron Lung.
Donwood’s artistic flair has earned him a number of accolades which he is generally reluctant to mention; and has in 2001 won a Grammy along with Doktor Tchock for best Packaging/Artwork for the Special Edition of Amnesiac.
Donwood has also published a selection of books, the most recent being ’Slowly Downward; A collection of miserable stories’, 2005 and is currently working on two new books to be entitled ’Household Worms’and ’Folly’.
