The drawings of Ron Franciere circa 1962-1988 — "Ron Franciere was something of a mystery to me. Ran into many dead ends trying to find information on him. I posted some images on my website Bighappyfunhouse. I received emails that held a few stories of Ron and his life - but nothing ever lead me to contacting Ron Franciere. Then, I received an anonymous comment on my website."

I knew I'd seen these before. Website by MeFite Bighappyfunhouse and posted to Projects where there's a bit more info from the "Finder".

That's some bad ass art Mr. Franciere. Hope your enjoying yourself on the other side.

It's amazing that the colours are still so vivid after so much time! Usually marker drawings always tend to lose something after a few years or exposure to sunlight.

That is some pure testosterone-fueled work! Makes ol' Pollock look like a girlie-girl.

Here's source of the quoted text, with more about how Bighappyfunhouse tracked down Ron.
