Far fucking out!!!! 

I mean -- WOW! What a find, indeed! 

I know Fred's art from a later period (the pen and ink and stipply
neo-pagan stuff from the mid 1960s onward, especially in the Feraferia
zines) and this just blew me away. It's wonderful art. 

Did Fred ever study under Ray Rice, by any chance? Ray was a muralist
and a teacher in the Bay Area in the late 19950s and before that in
Fresno in the early to mid 1950s. He just died recently in his early
80s. The reason i wonder about this is that there is an eerie
similarity between this early work by Fred and Ray's 1950s mural work
when he lived in Fresno and taught art -- in terms of brush style,
colour tonalities, and the compiled and juxtaposed human images. ) 

This is totally mind-blowing. 

Keep us apprised of the art show in September as it approaches, please Poke.
The rest of you -- check that link out!!!!!
