Slim Pickens

A Rick-Klu-commissioned pen & ink portrait of Slim Pickens-- Strangely enough, Slim turned up on an episode of THE MAN FROM U.N.C.L.E. I was watching ("The Iowa-Scuba Affair") the day I finished this art -- TECH NOTE: This is the first time I've used a pen nib instead of a rapidograph for stippling--

When I was about 4 or 5, I met Slim Pickens at a showing of his Western sculpture. At least, I think it was his sculpture. I really only remember him as a big belly wearing a cowboy hat.
