The cover is derived from a painting from Raphael called " the school of Athens". This is the work of Estonian-American artist Mark Kostabi. Apparently, Kotsabi had already made the stylised detail of the Raphael painting which he called “Use You Illusion” before the G N’R album was made. Axl Rose bought the painting and liked it so much it became the album cover and the album titles. “Use You Illusion” is a sentence from a verse of the song Locomotive off the second album.
