    I might be out of the loop, but who is this artist named “Max”?

  • nmilner says:

    It’s either Peter Max or Max Headroom.

    Peter Max??? Man, what have we become. Thomas Kinkaid and Peter Max, the lack of creativity by either of them kills me to no end. They give Pop Art a bad name and that’s hard to do, since it’s already about the cultural zeitgeist and the writing’s that’s already on the wall regarding culture.

    I like Kinkaid’s puzzles. It takes real talent to paint all of those little pieces and make them fit together into larger pictures of landscapes and windmills. I just wish the pieces were larger and the box came with a prize for completing the whole thing. Like a plastic ring or a little plastic football helmet would be cool. I like little plastic football helmets.
