Titan II — F111 for James Rosenquist

Artist: Thomas Parker Williams

Scientific American, January to June 1967
Accordion-fold painting, 7 panels

I chose a Scientific American volume from 1967 to make an accordion fold painting as a tribute to James Rosenquist's iconic work F-111 (1964). The advertising and article images from the volume inspired me to integrate them with a background image of a Titan II vehicle as Rosenquist did with the F-111. The work was done with watercolor, acrylic links, colored pencil and marker on paper. The case for the work contains the source images from the magazines.
