Personally, I adore very much artworks presented by Richard Phillips. The way he manipulated his inspiration creatively into Pop Art really amazing, till worldwide known his large-scale glossy hyper-realistic artworks. He used pictorial magazine style and it is kind a trademark for the masterpieces. Cool rite?

So, if you are Pop Art enthusiasts, why don't you try to produce one? It is worth the effort.
