There is plenty I could criticize about my high school art teacher, but teaching us about Robert Williams 9th grade is definitely not one of them.

Everything he says about the "high art" world is actually more topical today than it was in '89, too.

That's so cool. One of my physics teachers in high school used pinball as a pedagogical tool. Sounds crazy but now there's things like this:

Funny how we work that way.

Also with regards to Panter, I was obviously into Pee Wee's Playhouse first before I knew the name, what Slash Magazine was, any of that stuff. But I feel like it drew me to his style, just like my physics teacher is responsible for my pinball addiction. Never really thought about it like that.

Actually, I'm pretty sure he taught us about Williams in a weekend class on cartooning for teenagers he taught at the local community college, not in our actual high school class, come to think of it. But either way. Guy was a mixed bag but he got some stuff very right.

Oscar Wildcat
Hell yes! Oscar hit both of those shows back in the day, and prolly still has the second promotional poster ( lady on taco ) somewhere in the relics boxes. I never met the guy, and I'm thrilled that if you squint he's like some kind of louche Jimmy Stewart. Certaiinly one of the better fine art painters from that decade.
