Behold! The BIONIC WARS have begun! An ode to my favorite show as a kid, The Six Million Dollar Man. I have envisioned it here as if it were pitched in a Star Wars fashion.Researched on the web and painted in Photoshop, the piece contains elements of The Six Million Dollar Man and The Bionic Woman combined in a Star Wars theme as a reminder of a time when giant movie pitches had not yet taken hold, the glorious 70's!
Awhile back I was fortunate enough to share a phone conversation with the Godfather of Lowbrow and Art Hero, Robert Williams. It was a great moment for me as I have been a fan of his for decades. The occasion inspired my first caricature.
Robert Williams delivers a personal tour of his current show, Conceptual Realism: In The Service Of The Hypothetical, at CSUN. I was on hand with my little canon Elph so the video/audio quality is not great but I have spiced it up with pics and vid to help it along a bit.

If your a Williams fan, you should get a kick out of all the good info.
A childhood love of Comics, Cartoons, and Monster Movies mixed later in life with a healthy dose of Sex, Drugs, and Rock N' Roll, topped with a Robt. Williams twist, is pretty much the recipe for my artistic inspiration.
