  1. I blaspheme, but will say that the first thing that came to mind, gazing upon the artist’s work was Jessica Rabbit, from Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

    The use of color and texture struck me as near cartoonish–but not in a bad way. It was prophetic, in that decades later, other artists, popular rather than serious, perhaps, chose consciously or not to emulate the smoky, suggestive color palate of this artist who portrayed, unknowingly or not, the future in a different art form.
