- Lee Conklin:
Influenced primary by the pen-and-ink mastery of Heinrich Kley and Saul Steinberg, Conklin (born July 24, 1938). His Fillmore pieces are typified by the density of their detail, with both the graphics and the lettering the product of painstaking, Dexedrine-fueled effort; among the other recurring motifs of his work include a fascination with the mutated human form, as well as anthropomorphic imagery. Of the many legendary graphic artists to emerge during the late 1960s, none translated the psychedelic consciousness of the times with more insight or mind-warping intensity than Lee Conklin, whose prolific poster work for the Fillmore West remains among the most provocative visual interpretations of the Summer of Love and its drug-fueled spirit ever created.
