Johnny Guitar Watson Art


This was retrieved from the trash on Yucca and Ivar in Hollywood in the early ’90s. It looks like a print but it’s entirely hand done, each little Johnny Guitar Watson mounted on thin cardboard and cut out, each jewel and vestige of chemical intoxication beautifully airbrushed. Feedback and reverb are two of my favorite things to happen to a guitar… or anything for that matter.


I do not have to tell you the effect that Johnny Guitar Watson’s personal style has had on my work. Here is Sidney Poitier under the influence of JGW style while under the brush of me, Bubbles the artist.
