A very entertaining documentary about an artist I didn't know i was aware of, going back to early Zap magazine issues. Looking at art today, with surreal and comic book undercurrents, it's hard to overstate his influence.
You get a lot of his way of working and if you include a lot of his interviews from various sources (Comic's Journal, Juxtapoz) you will get a vast amount information about Mr. Williams. His art is what inspired the direction of the illustrative fine art scene of the 90's until today. There are pros and cons to the movement, but the very best are always well deserving of their success.
