"Portrait of Billy Gunn", James Dean

Most of my friends know how infatuated with James Dean I am. Imagine my shock to find out today that he was a fantastic artist as well as a great and totally perfect actor. Pictured below is his final painting, "Portrait of Billy Gunn". Here's a link to a website which catalogues several actors/rock stars and their art. Check out Janis Joplin's, which is much better than I would have thought. David Bowie's art is also very good. Be sure to check out his painting, "Boy in Berlin". RIP Phyllis Diller.
