Bibliography and Notes
My drawings were based, in part, on the following materials: for bugs, bears, and insects, as well as Nero, I made extensive use of Collier’s Encyclopedia (1959), Vol.s 4, 3, 10 & 14 respectively. I used the hands of Adam and God from Michelangelo’s Sistine ceiling. Spiders were from National Geographic Vol. 140 #2. Ialso used the “metropolis” robot and Robby the Robot from “Forbidden Planet”, the Venus of Willendorf, the Cydonian Sphinx of Mars, a crucifixion by Rubens, “The Scream” by Edward Munch, a 3rd century BC Greek’s “Wrestlers”, the 5th century BC (?) Greek’s “Children of Niobe”, and Callini’s “Perseus”. Finally, the cover of Science News Volume 144 #7 was my source for the Mars probe that so mysteriously disappeared in 1983. (And by the way, I do so wish people would stop trying to blame that regrettable incident on the Martian Provisional Government...we didn’t have anything to do with it -- Hell, we weren't even around! Hey, look, if you people can’t keep track of your own junk - etc.
