Notes: 

DiBenedetto is a painter and draftsman who creates visually complex, hallucinatory landscapes that evoke the fantastic imagery of Hieronymus Bosch, William Blake, and Max Ernst, and the psychedelic poster designs of Rick Griffin. This sheet brings together several of DiBenedetto's primary motifs, such as the octopus, the helicopter, and the spokes of a ferris wheel. Several of the helicopter blades, undergirded by sinuous tentacles, terminate in painted canvases, suggesting that this image is something like a portrait of the artist
