He was an icon in the 60s and 70s. You used to his art on album covers(remember those) and movie posters everywhere. By the time his art was used at the end of Rocky III it already seemed like a flashback, But I truly did enjoy hi stuff long agao.

His work in Playboy made me want to look at the pictures. He was a true genius. RIP

That was him as the ring announcer in Rocky III. I'm not really into impressionist art, but he was very popular.
