Picture Perfect Wednesday: Conan the Pin-up!

  1. Neat images.

    I'm always blown away by the manner in which Alcala renders his backgrounds. They're so lush that I sometimes forget to notice the figures in the foreground.

    Rip Off

  2. Alcala is another of those talented artists who has never gotten the appreciation he is due.
