The Realm of Figuro, Cover Nr. 32, July, 2001
This is "Covers" work Nr. 32 --- ink and gouache on paper. 21 x 15 cm / 8.25 in x 6 in. Dated July, 2001. "There is No Escape from --- The Realm of Figuro." In the Approval Stamp image: "Glance Sideways!" Price "10K x 15¢." In the company box: "Vast Referentiality. M.S.B., T.E.H., D.F.A. & Co." For the first time in this series, my signature is in my own actual style. The image is apparently abstract, yet actually based on a detail of a drawing the famous and great comic illustrator Gene Colan made for me, an artist who to me is my "master."
