DescriptionRobert Williams - Yama Yama/Ugly Head Cover Original Art (George DiCaprio, 1981). When Punk Rock reared its ugly head into popular culture, it sent a shockwave felt 'round the world. One of the results was a double-faced digest-sized comic known as Yama Yama/Ugly Head. The artwork was divided between two well-known Underground cartoonists, Robert Williams (who drew the cover we are offering in this lot) and S. Clay Wilson, who did the flip cover (Ugly Head). As was their intent, this is not a pretty picture. The book was filled with excessive violence, and Williams' cover was loaded with things that would be considered flaws in most cases -- dirty tape, smudges, etc. The art itself (outside the "found objects") was done in color markers, with splatters of red, green, and black paint added. It's been matted and is in Excellent condition; on the back of the board can be found a stamp from Williams' studio. Of interest is the publisher of the original book, father to a certain young actor named Leonardo! Finding a copy of the Yama Yama book can be tough; finding original art, not to mention a cover, can be near impossible. For those in the know, this is a work of genius!
