I've never been a fan of collages, even those by the King, but this one is effective and downright jarring! It actually looks like something Steranko might have drawn in one of his Dali homages. Surrealistic and nightmarish. Note that Jack filled the lower right by painting color directly on the art board rather than pasting in another piece. He then painted that color onto the smoke to tie it in. He also painted highlights on the skull and hand. I've not observed Jack touching up the photos before--is this typical or atypical?
