Popartz!


At last...volume 2 of POPARTZ! is now in print.  "Whut iz it?" you may ask.  Well...around 2008 or so I started making these little 5" x 5" pen and ink and watercolor pop art pieces...lots of portraits of favorite movie monsters, advertising characters, movie stars, superheroes, topless or nude animation characters, etc. etc.  Eventually I made more than 500 of the doggone things...here's a small sampling:


Now, all of these little paintings have been collected, reduced, and lovingly reproduced in full color in two volumes titled POPARTZ!  These slick little booklets (24 pages each) measure approximately 5 3/4" x 8 1/4", are printed on 128g glossy paper, and have a saddle-stitched binding (not stapled).  My publisher sells these for ten bucks each.  For a limited time I'm offering signed copies of both volumes for only $15, plus $3 shipping ($18 total). 

I also have a few copies of my ABSTRACTIONS book available...identical in format to the above, this booklet reproduces some of my abstract artwork (see below):


All three signed booklets - POPARTZ! vol. 1 & 2, plus ABSTRACTIONS - for only $20, plus $3 shipping ($23 total).  I accept PayPal - jrwilliams57@yahoo.com

Smell the Weirdness...


Happy 2019!  All kinds of cool & strange junk continues to ooze up through the cracks out into the daylight.  First up is this excellent double-LP collection of film tracks from SOMETHING WEIRD VIDEO...


Read more about this must-have comp HERE.

Next is the recently released BLOOD ISLAND collection of DVDs, including the demented drive-in "classics" TERROR IS A MAN (1959), BRIDES OF BLOOD (1968), MAD DOCTOR OF BLOOD ISLAND (1968), and BEAST OF BLOOD (1970).

Last but not least...a new LAS VEGAS GRIND compilation, after all these years!  Looks like a solid collection of tracks, very much in keeping with the spirit of the original now-classic LPs...


Listen to track samples HERE.
